Set of topographical etchings in the vicinity of Sandhurst, Berkshire, by William Delamotte (1775-1863), landscape artist. From 1812 Delamotte was a drawing master at the Royal Military College in Sandhurst. Influenced by Girtin's watercolour style, Delamotte was one of a group of landscape artists also including Constable and Turner, who took to making oil sketches in the open. Previously Delamotte had spent four years living in Oxford, also as a drawing master, and several of Delamotte's earlier prints show views in and around Oxford.
