Lithograph on watermarked paper, 'J. Whatman 1817'. Sheet size: 275 x 430mm (10¾ x 16") very large margins.
Landscape with path. Amateur lithograph by the army officer and politician Frederick William Trench (c.1777-1859), whose father owned Heywood, Ballynakill in Queen's County. Trench was also keenly interested in architecture: in 1815 he proposed a vast monument to British naval and military victories over France on the site which became Trafalgar Square, and in 1824 he launched a project for an embankment on the north side of the Thames (in conjunction with which a long print of the project was produced).
For Trench's embankment scheme see refs. 23749, 27468 &c. Ex: The Hon Christopher Lennox-Boyd Collection.
