Sandby: Charlton near Woolwich
Paul Sandby.
A View of Charlton near Woolwich in Kent.
[Engraved by M. A. Rooker after Sandby. Published by John Boydell, 1781.]
Engraving with good later colour.  165 x 205mm 
A plate from Sandby's 'A Collection of One Hundred and Fifty Select Views in England, Scotland and Ireland'. First published by Kearsly in 1778 (with 108 plates), the series was more affordable than Sandby's larger prints, despite using some of the best engravers of the day, and provided an insight into the countryside of the British Isles. Such was the demand that this edition, with extra views, was published.
