Lit: Raphael W. Read, MS catalogue (215): see T.2249, under Lit.

Listed by Raphael Read among the last etchings produced by his father in ‘ 1841–2–3–4 ’, but not included in the album of his etchings presented by D. C. Read to the British Museum in 1842; it was presumably made some time between that presentation and 1844, when Read gave up etching.
