Completion of the plate is promised 'by the summer of 1827' but in his covering letter to Soane dated 11 January 1829 (see below) Vendramini states that it is only just finished after five years labour. Proofs on India paper ('of which a limited number will be printed') are priced at 6 guineas, proofs 'on plain paper' at 4 guineas, and ordinary impressions at 2 guineas. Inscribed at foot in Vendramini's hand N.B. To non subscribers the prints will be 3 Guineas / and the proofs proportionably dearer.
