The Seats of the Nobility and Gentry, In a Collection of the most interesting & Picturesque Views was published and engraved by W. Watts in 1779. These original copper engravings are after drawings and paintings by the preeminent landscape artists of the 18th century, including Paul & Thomas Sandby.

Paul Sandby was an English topographical watercolorist and graphic artist, born in Nottingham and brother of Thomas Sandby. He began his career as a draughtsman and later moved on to live with his brother at Windsor, where he made many drawings of Windsor and Eton. Thomas Gainsborough, the most versatile painter of the 18th century and Sandby’s contemporary, considered Sandby to be the only English landscape artist who painted ‘real views from nature’ as opposed to artificial, idealized drawings.

Each print measures approximately 10 1/2 by 7 3/4 inches long. The paper is light creamy in color with occasional foxing. It is a strong thick handmade paper, chain lined & occasionally watermarked. A copy of the title page & the original text description accompanies each print.  These prints are in marvelous condition for their age of over 225 years.
