[John Maitland, Duke of Lauderdale.] James Prince of Walles.Nat. 21 Juni 1688.
Engraving, very rare. Sheet 330 x 250mm (13 x 9¾"). Trimmed to image on 3 sides, mounted on album paper.
Portrait of John Maitland, first Duke of Lauderdale (1616-82), dressed in the robes of the Order of the Garter, in which he was enroled in 1672. However this plate has been altered, with a new title suggesting the sitter is James Francis Edward Stuart (1688-1766), the 'Old Pretender', without any attempt to re-engrave the face.
Not in Sharpe.
