The rare titlepage to a set of eight landscapes, with a figure of Time with a scythe, a sketching cherub and Artemis of Ephesus being revealed from behind a curtain by another cherub. This rare series was drawn, engraved and originally published by John Fayram in 1739; the British Museum only has this title and one plate from a Fayram edition and none published by Griffin. Fayham was a pupil of 'Godfrey Kneller’s Academy of Painting and Drawing' and painted portraits of Thomas Hervey and his father, John, 1st Earl of Bristol. He died in 1744, after which Peter Griffin bought the plates to this series.
