PUBLISHER: ‘Dade’s History and Antiquities of Holderness’, see also Notes.
DATE: c 1784
METHOD: Etching with contemporary colour
IMAGE SIZE: 11.25 inches by 18.0 inches image area (28cms by 46cms)
NOTES: SOUTH WEST ASPECT of the CHURCH of St AUGUSTINE HEADON (now commonly spelled Hedon)
A grand print of this grand church in Holderness, East Yorkshire, just a few miles east of Hull. It stands now, much as seen in this Eighteenth Century print.
One of the finest and largest parish churches in Yorkshire, it stands high above the now small town of Hedon. Its large size led to it being called the ‘King of Holderness’. The print is dedicated to William Constable of the local Burton Constable Hall.
On the reverse in a later pencilled hand, there is a note, ‘Paulson’s History of Holderness 1841’, so this could be a later re-print, but in no way does this detract from the attractiveness of the print.
CONDITION: Good, the print has been folded and laid on linen, possibly contemporary, and it has some vertical and horizontal foldmarks as a result. Thus it is not a specimen print, but it has great charm and character. It has been professionally conserved, so it is stable. Good margins and would frame nicely.
