Hide Profile

Samuel Ireland (d. 1800) was an engraver and publisher in London, England. He was also a collector of books and prints. In his later years, Ireland's reputation was ruined by his involvement in the forgery of Shakespeare manuscripts produced by his son, William Henry Ireland (1771-1835)

James Edward Oglethorpe, 1696-1785, was an English general, philanthropist, and founder of the colony of Georgia in America.

From the description of Etching of General James Oglethorpe, 1785. (University of Georgia). WorldCat record id: 443441827
