A separately issued early lithograph from 'Specimens of Polyautography'. by Thomas Barker (1769-1847) Barker was born in Wales but was known as "Barker of Bath", after the city he moved to as a young man. As an expert on fresco technique, Barker advised on the redecoration of the Houses of Parliament in 1841. He also published 'Forty Lithographic Impressions From Drawings by Thomas Barker, Selected from His Studies of Rustic Figures After Nature' (1813), the first one-man collection of lithographs ever printed in England. Many of the stones, still bearing Barker's original drawings, are in the Victoria Art Gallery, Bath.
