The North-East View of the Old Dormitory,in 1788 When the New Buildings Were Begun in Old Palace Yard Westminster.
Etching, sheet 145 x 175mm (5¾ x 7"). Tipped into album page.
Very rare and interesting etching of a dormitory in Westminster School. The school may have been attended by the artist, William, 2nd Viscount Courtenay (1742 - 1788), amateur etcher and caricaturist, who would have been of schoolboy age when he etched this plate.
See Guildhall Library Record: 28413 for a 1788 engraving of the same image by William Angus.
