Yarmouth. Publish'd Dec.r. 8.th. 1800 by M. H. Keymer.
Mezzotint with very large margins. Plate: 340 x 240mm (13¼ x 9½"). Title area slightly messy
Half portrait of Admiral Nelson (1758-1805) with a cocked hat after a portrait attributed to M. H. Keymer which itself was after a portrait by Leonard Guzzardi. Guzzardi's portrait was in the possession of Sir William Hamilton, who on his arrival in Yarmouth summoned Keymer to make a copy as quickly as possible. A very jocular and rare portrait of Nelson.
