"Thomas Haden of Derby". 1864. Etching and drypoint. Schneiderman 53.ii/v. 13 7/8 x 9 7/16 (sheet 16 1/2 x 11 7/16). Rubbing from a previous mat in the lower margin, well outside the image; otherwise excellent condition. Printed with plate tone on cream-colored 'BIV' laid paper. A fine impression of this scarce early state. Signed and titled in the plate. $550.
After a painting by Thomas Wright of Derby, entitled "Edwin the Minstrel". The sitter was Francis Seymour Haden's grandfather, Thomas Haden of Derby, also a surgeon. The etching may have been based on the mezzotint reproduction of the painting. This is one of Haden's few portrait etchings.
