Published June the 11th, 1781 at the Ancient & Modern Print Warehouse No. 28 in the Hay Market by A. Torre and J. Thane.
Etching, proof? 150 x 185mm (6 x 7¼"); in ink verso "It is almost certain that this is an Imposition"; very large margins. Some soiling.
A satire on the perennial north-south divide, comparing an emaciated Scot dressed in rags in front of Edinburgh Castle with a portly Londoner with St Paul's Cathedral behind. A later state, with the same publication date but with added aquatint, has Paul Sandby's name instead of Hogarth's. This is the more likely attribution: certainly this print is not listed in Paulson's bibliography of Hogarth. The BM posits that the engraver might be Francesco Bartolozzi, but it most likely to be the work of Sandby as well. Anthony Torre and John Thane worked together only 1781-82, before handing over their business at the Ancient and Modern Print Warehouse to Paul Colnaghi.
See BM Satires 3799 for a state with Hogarth's name but without the engraver's initials, and the same number for the finished version.

Title page to the set of views in north Wales published in 1776 by Paul Sandby (bap. 1731, d. 1809). Sandby, one of the foremost landscape artists of his generation, had published a similar set of views in south Wales the previous year, having collected material during sketching tours in 1771 and 1773 with Sir Watkin Williams Wynn, Charles Greville, and Joseph Banks, the dedicatees of the two sets. Over the coming decades Wales became highly popular amongst tourists searching for romantic and picturesque landscapes, due in no small part to Sandby's popular depictions.

Printed for J. Bowles at No 43 in Cornhill & Carington Bowles, No 69 in St Pauls Church Yard, London / Publish'd according to Act of Parliament, 1756
Etching with additional letterpress printed from separate plate, sheet 280 x 150mm (11 x 6"). Trimmed around edges of printed area.
Early etching by the celebrated landscape painter and pioneer of aquatint printing Paul Sandby. This print is influenced by Poussin's 'Arcadian Shepherds' who puzzle over a tomb inscribed 'Et in Arcadia Ego'. Here, however, the figures are learned antiquaries who try to decipher the giant inscription. Unusually, this impression has the solution printed below from a second plate (lacking in the British Museum's two impressions). The print was popular enough to be copied in the 1770s.

An early unfortified Manor House, built to house the Harcourt family in the late 14th century; however most of the house was dismantled to use as foundations for Nuneham Courtney in 1756. One of the surviving parts is the medieval kitchen with its octagonal roof seen here on the left. The kitchen is open to the rafters, and smoke from the open fire would gather in the conical roof space, ventilated by louvers in the base of the roof. The artist on these engraved views is as family member. George Simon, Viscount Nuneham, later second earl Harcourt (1736 - 1809), was taught by Paul Sandby (1725 - 1809), and was a member of the Society of Dilettanti. The manor has remained in the Harcourt family to the present day.

Attractive view from Mr Isherwood's Brewhouse of horses pulling wagons loaded with beer barrels, and Windsor Castle beyond. After Paul Sandby (1725 - 1809), watercolourist and printmaker. Born in Nottingham, he came to London in 1745 where he joined his brother Thomas at the Board of Ordnance. He is best remembered for his watercolours and as the first British printmaker to use aquatint systematically. Sandby executed several other versions of this view, varying the disposition of the figures and the dray carts, or adding groups of figures and animals. The British Museum has a Sandby watercolour similar to this view without any figures or animals in the foreground.

Gate under Queen Elizabeth's Picture Gallery
P. Sandby Fecit. 1769
Published by T. Palser, Surry side Westminster Bridge, 1812.
Etching and aquatint. Sheet 205 x 280mm (8 x 11"). Trimmed inside platemark.
View at Windsor castle by Paul Sandby. Oppé identifies the print as one of a group which he describes as 'outline etchings of approximately the same size which formed part of a small Windsor set of 1780, some from drawings of 1769.' This is a later restrike, with aquatint added, published by Thomas Palser in 1812. The publication of many of Sandby's etchings is obscured by the fact that many were not published or only issued privately, and that many plates were acquired by commercial publishers such as Sayer and Boydell and issued as single plates or in groups. There is an almost identical drawing at Windsor (no. 14536; Oppé 14) while Robertson refers to another related drawing at the Yale Centre for British Art (B1975.4.1846), dated 1767.
