Prospect of Greenwich from the Observatory at the Top of the Hill. From the place.....
This appears to be a rather cruder English re-engraving of Rigaud's original, first published in Paris in 1736 (see PAI7091). There are some minor changes of detail, such as the absence of 'tumbling' figures on the lower right slope of the hill. The English and French text below the image copies Rigaud's, with minor changes of orthography.
