this is apparently a modern photographic print, probably made at the time photographs were being taken of items in the collection for possible reporodution in the book edited by Liam Price about Austin Cooper, which appeared in 1942.
Thought to be a photographic print of an original drawing by Lord Carlow in this collection (see 2122 TX (65)), but this print has the name and words "Lord Carlow pinx 1780" inscribed on the bottom which is not on the original.
Physical description: 1 print : photographic ; 17.7 x 23.9 cm.
