Drop-head title, p.[4] blank. Watermark date: 1830. This advertisement was issued by the veteran printseller Robert Bowyer, who published the print - a large steel-engraving measuring 223/4" x 34¼" - in 1832 in partnership with M. Parkes. Earlier, in 1823, Bowyer had published a print of the same subject engraved in stipple by J.G. Murray after James Stephanoff. Hayter's huge painting 'The House of Lords, 1820: The Trial of Queen Caroline' (91¾" x 140¼") had been commissioned in 1820 by the Hon. George Agar-Ellis, M.P. (later Lord Dover), and was exhibited three years later in rented rooms in Pall Mall. It is now in the National Portrait Gallery, London. This advertisement includes a list of the 186 'Distinguished Characters Who were pleased to sit to Mr. Hayter for their Portraits', together with the 'Commencement Of Mr. Bowyer's List Of Subscribers ...', the latter having six subscribers' names inserted in MS. after 'L. Palfreyman, Esq.' Another advertisement for the same work also preserved in Soane's Library (q.v.) has the watermark date '1831' and omits the list of subscribers.

Binding Loose bifolium.
