A view of the remains of the Aqueduct of Hadrian, on the slopes of Anchesmos, to the north east of the Acropolis in Athens, published in the 'Antiquities of Athens and Other Monuments of Greece' by James 'Athenian' Stuart & Nicholas Revett.

Published as the Act directs April 3.d 1794, by G. Nicol Pall Mall.
Stipple. 298 x 172mm. 11¾ x 6¾". Cut along side edges; crease down the centre.
Charles Cornwallis, 1st Marques Cornwallis, KG (1738-1805) was a British Army officer and colonial administrator. In the United States and Britain, he is best remembered as one of the leading generals in the American War of Independence. His 1781 surrender to a combined American-French force at the Siege of Yorktown is often incorrectly considered the end of the war; in fact it continued for a further two years. Despite this defeat, he retained the confidence of successive British governments and continued to enjoy an active career. In India, where he served two terms as governor general, he is remembered for promulgating the Permanent Settlement. As Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, he argued for Catholic emancipation and oversaw the response to the 1798 Irish Rebellion and a French invasion of Ireland.

He was born in Bristol and has played on many of the grounds in the area. He started playing when he was just 16 in 1864 and played his final first class match in 1908. The doctor from Downend scored 54,896 runs at an average of 39.55. He is still the 5th highest scoring player of all time. He wasn't just a batsman thought. He took 2876 wickets at an average of 17.92 - the 6th highest wicket taker of all time. On two occasions (1873, 1876) he scored 2000 runs and took 100 wickets in one season. He also make 887 catches which is still the second highest number of catches taken by anyone in their career. All of this was done in 43 years between 1865 and 1908 when he eventually retired aged 59. At the Oval in 1878 he once threw a cricket ball over 116 yards (106m) three times with the wind and over 100 yards back in the other direction.
