Notes:
This print was re-published by the Society of Antiquaries for its members in 1778, together with 10 other historical prints by Vertue. Dr William Hunter, being a member of the Society, received impressions of the 11 prints, still in his collection today. It is no 8 in a series of 'Nine historical prints representing 'Kings, Queens, Princes &c. of the Tudor Family...', and is accompanied by an account of the pictures, written by Vertue, and also re-published by the Society of Antiquarians. It represents a painting which is a small detail in the bottom left corner of a painting in the Royal Collection by Livinus Vogelaare of the Memorial of Lord Darnley. The scene shows Mary Queen of Scots surrendering.
