Mezzotint, sheet 355 x 255mm (14 x 10"), with large margins.. Left platemark cracked.
The Rev. William Dodd (1729 - 1777), parson and author who was hanged for forgery. In February 1777 he offered a bond for £4,200 in the name of Lord Chesterfield to a stockbroker named Robertson. Robertson procured the money, for which, according to Dodd, Chesterfield would pay an annuity of £700. Dodd then brought the bond apparently signed by the earl. The bond was transferred to the lender's solicitor, who noticed some odd marks on the document, saw the earl personally, learnt that the signature was a forgery, and instantly obtained warrants from the lord mayor against Dodd and Robertson. Despite attempts to obtain a pardon, especially by Dr. Johnson, who composed several papers for him, Dodd was sentenced on 26 May and hanged in June. Traditionally attributed to John Raphael Smith (1751=1812).

There are allusions to his services as a Commissioner of 'a certain great board' (the Admiralty), and to the hospitality of his villa in Essex [Bifrons]. Miss C------m is said to be the natural daughter of a late Irish peer of that name, educated at a capital boarding school in Kensington, and to have been drugged and seduced by Lord B.

A series of views of the exterior of Hampton Court Palace, drawn by John Spyers (c.1731-98).

The albums were rediscovered at the beginning of this century and were loaned to Hampton Court for an exhibition in 2016. Spyers publishing this set and a similar series of local gentlemen's houses in 1786, both aquatinted by Francis Jukes (1747-1812). When he died (in apartments at the palace) he was described as 'Surveyor of Hampton Court'.
