THORNTON, Robert. A Group of Auriculas. (Two auriculas only).

An original pure aquatint, printed in a green ink and finished by hand by Sutherland after the drawing by Reinagle, published by Thornton in "The Temple of Flora." 1st state, 1807, 560 x 440 mm.
Fine grained aquatint, so fine that it is scarcely apparent, except on close inspection, on the mountains which have subtle gradations of tone; fir trees on hillside stand out but faintly. (Dunthorne).
The mountains shown are the Alps as the Auricula is native of Switzerland.
Good wide margins to paper.
