Markings

Collector's mark, in red ink, verso, l.r.: H.F.S. [L. 1309]
Black ink, verso: This head is peculiarly scarce. It is not noticed by Granger, nor was it known to Bromley. The print appears to have been taken by that engraved by Hollar, as the age and date exactly correspond.

Provenance

Henry F. Sewall, N.Y.; date acquired: 1897
