CRAIG, William Marshall, 1764?-1829 : CAVENDISH SQUARE : MILK BELOW!
London : Richard Phillips, 1804. An attractive and unusual antique print – a milkmaid with her yoke and tin pails delivers the milk to Cavendish Square – "these are, almost universally, Welsh girls, whose uncommon strength and hardiness of constitution peculiarly fit them for an employment of such great labour and constant exposure to the inclemencies of the weather". Engraved from an original study by William Marshall Craig, water-colour painter to Queen Charlotte. Originally produced for Phillips’ part-work “Modern London : Being the History and Present State of the British Metropolis” (1804).

PRIOR, William Henry, 1812-1882 : WIGMORE STREET IN 1820. (FROM A DRAWING BY SHEPHERD IN MR. CRACE’S COLLECTION.)
[London : 1878 (or later)]. An antique print of Wigmore Street – showing the premises of David Davies & Son, coachmakers, at No.15, of Frederick Crace, house decorator, at No.14, and of Richard Hetley, glass shade maker, at No.13. Frederick Crace (1779-1859) was of course rather more than a house decorator – the royal arms are shown above his window – he was extensively employed in the decoration of the royal palaces. He was also the leading collector of London maps and prints of his day – his fine collection being purchased by the British Museum in 1880. Engraved from a study by William Henry Prior, based on an earlier drawing by Thomas Hosmer Shepherd (1793-1864) – who was employed by Crace to make water-colour drawings of London buildings – and originally produced for the part-work “Old and New London” (London : 1873-1878) – a work which itself relied heavily on the Crace Collection.
