The original mezzotint plate engraved by Burgess after Hoppner's great portrait of 1802 in "Her Majesty's Collection at St. James's Palace". The plate was first published by Welch & Gwynne, but this is the altered state with H.G. Bohn's name. It was dedicated to "The Members of the United Service Club". The front of plate was electroplated, for protection, and shows a few minor marks of tarnishing.
