A Presentation of the March of the Guards towards Scotland, in the Year 1745.
[London: Robert Sayer, 1768.]
Engraving with very large margins; 175 x 280mm (7 x 11").
The English guards marching to Finchley to protect London from the threat of Bonnie Prince Charlie. From the painting by Hogarth (London, Foundling Museum). Soon after the death of William Hogarth in 1764, his widow Jane gave the London publisher Robert Sayer permission to publish a collection of her husband's work. Although engraved in a smaller format, Sayer's versions retain all the detail of the original plates.
