Aquatint with etching, printed in sepia. 230 x 295mm (9 x 11½"), with very large margins.

From Pyne's ‘Microcosm: or, a picturesque delineation of the arts, agriculture, manufacturers, &c. of Great Britain'. William Henry Pyne (1769-1843), the son of a London weaver who became an artist and writer, was commissioned to write and illustrate a book by the publisher, William Miller of Albermarle Street, London. The illustrations are particularly notable as they portray British life on the eve of the Industrial Revolution.
