The Hermit, Angel, and Guide.
Published January 1, 1795, by William Bulmer, at the Shakespeare Printing Office, Cleveland Row.
Wood engraving, sheet 205 x 150mm. 8 x 6".
Illustrating a scene from Thomas Parnell's poem 'The Hermit'. A high degree of technical skill is apparent in the work of engraver Thomas Bewick (1753-1828). He engraved plates for bank notes for the Carlisle, Bewick and Northumberland Banks to prevent pen and ink forgeries. One of a set of illustrations to 'Poems by Goldsmith and Parnell'.
