His widow issued his plates in 1766 and 1767 afater his death with added numbers in the top right corner to correspond with the numbers in the catalogue of his prints which she produced (in which this plate was listed as 'Large Turk's head, with a veil). Lifetime impression before the number '62' was added in top right.
