Mezzotint, proof before letters. Plate 198 x 279mm. 7¾ x 11". Very fine, with very large margins.
Plate 14 from "Rivers of England". A view of the ruined abbey from the opposite side of the river, a horse wading beyond at right. The British Museum say the following: W.B. Cooke published a series of mezzotints by various printmakers under the title "The Rivers of England" between 1823-1826. The title of the series was changed to "River Scenery" in 1827, although this title appears on some prints published in 1824-1825 (also in 1826). Twenty one plates were published altogether between 1823-1827.
