London Volunteers 1799

These prints were published in 1972 by Hugh Evelyn. They are the first reprints of the famous aquatints drawn by Thomas Rowlandson in 1799 published by Rudolph Ackermann.  The images are 20.5 x 25.5 cm (8” x 10”) shown against a light greyish orange background (c. RGB fcf2e1) impressed on medium high white matt cartridge paper weighing c. 120 g/m2 weight. The full image size is approximately 26.2 x 33.7 cm (17” x 12 ¾”) but actual size may vary according to the guillotine cut made by printers and bookbinders 50 years ago.  Shown here are imperfect scans of the plates. The details of the London Wards and Parishes shown in the descriptions of each of the prints have largely been provided by the British Library (especially the Frederick Crace Map Collection held there) and Wikipedia for some of the text (and the map outlines of the City of London showing the ward and parish locations within) to both of whom we offer thanks.
These prints are STANDARD size. See shipping charges for up to 10 prints at Shipping & Returns
