The first two volumes of Ireland's Hogarth illustrated were first published in 1791 (q.v.). The author (not to be confused with the draughtsman, John Ireland who died c. 1797) owned most of Hogarth's manuscripts which he apparently rewrote with his own additions and corrections for this supplement, 'Vol. III and last' on the engraved title. See R. Paulson, Hogarth: his life, art, and times (London & New Haven 1971), I, xv--xvi. With an errata slip tipped in after page 380. ESTC t2313.
