Lithograph, rare, printed area 185 x 260mm (7¼ x 10¼"), large margins
Amateur lithograph made during a trip to continental Europe by the army officer and politician Frederick William Trench (c.1777-1859). In December 1819 he was returned as an MP for Cambridge in an election controlled by the Duke of Rutland, owner of Belvoir, and he made several lithographs of Belvoir castle. Trench was also keenly interested in architecture: in 1815 he proposed a vast monument to British naval and military victories over France on the site which became Trafalgar Square, and in 1824 he launched a project for an embankment on the north side of the Thames (in conjunction with which a long print of the project was produced).
