Lord Baltimore, whose reputed income was £30,000 a year, spent the winter of 1762-63 in Italy before embarking at Naples for Constantinople on 4 May. He returned to London on 31 October 1764. In 1768, he was charged with rape, and although he was acquitted, left England in the face of public hostility. Reaching Naples in July or August 1771, Calvert died there on 14 September. He seems to have taken the copper plates for this work with him, as by the end of 1771, whether acquired directly or posthumously from Calvert, Nolli had published the present work. Atabey 1147; Blackmer 1557; Lowndes I, 106. Bound at the end are 9 plates and one leaf of engraved text from another work. (Text source: Christie's)
