Catalogue Note

Also included with this lot is a hand-coloured engraved portrait of John Jorrocks ("...A Citizen of Credit and Renown..."), also by Alken (R. Ackermann, 1843), preserved in its own red silk chemise. Tooley records that the Suzannet copy had this additional plate bound in as a frontispiece. According to Tooley "this plate was for some reason withdrawn and does not form part of the work".
