A picturesque landscape view of Creetown, in the Galloway region of south-western Scotland. A couple stroll along a path in the foreground to the right, with the river to the left. A small stone brige can be seen in the centre of the image, with hills in the distance. Plate 56 From William Daniell's 'A Voyage Round Great Britain', a series of 308 aquatints published in eight volumes between 1814-1825, described by R.V. Tooley as 'the most important colour plate book on British Topography'. William Daniell's 'A Voyage Round Great Britain' was the most ambitious of the many topographical publications produced in England during the early nineteenth century and its plates are a highpoint in the history of aquatint engraving.
