Steel engraving, sheet 225 x 425mm (9 x 16¾"). Trimmed around image and text as usual.
George IV leaving for Scotland, engraved for the Stationer's Almanack. The Stationers' Company had published the Stationers' Almanack since 1747, a single-sheet which consisted of calendar text set out beneath an engraved headpiece that recorded significant events of the preceding year. At the end of the year, the image would often be separated from the calendar and kept. Very atmospheric view.
