Lettered above the image, ‘London Mag. July 1778’, and below, ‘Admiral Keppel’. This print was published by R. Baldwin as an illustration in ‘The London Magazine or Gentleman’s Monthly Intelligencer’, volume 47 (July 1778), opposite page 291, alongside ‘Historical Memoirs of Admiral Keppel’. The magazine described the print as ‘a striking Resemblance, drawn from an original Picture in the Possession of the Family’. (Updated May 2019.)
