Declaration

Heatons has clarified that the Francesco Bartolozzi After: William Hamilton, 1778 Engravings (HEA/bart / LA91809) is genuinely of the period declared with the date/period of manufacture being 1778.

Condition

All as per pic unopened as came from a top ie reliable framer. Stupidly rare the set seems to be of six originally but the BM does not have the s full set. The one is actually a proof with lettering in pen or pencil and hand signed by Bartolozzi which as I listed initially in a hurry is amazing. Both have a soft crease which would press/iron out
