Robert Adam: Design for a Sedan Chair

Robert Adam: Design for a Sedan Chair
Robert Adam.
Design of a Sedan Chair as executed for her Majesty.
[Engraved by P.Begbie after a design by Robert Adam, published, in London, 1775.]
Engraving   445 x 590mm. 
Robert Adam, the formost architect of the period, designed this sedan chair for Queen Charlotte, with classical decoration including Græcian sphinxes. He chose to include the design in his Works in Architecture, a collection of elevations and views of his most famous works, including Syon House in Middlesex.
This must surely be the largest engraving of a sedan chair.
