This print, catalogued in NGV 1894 and 1905, does not appear in the current NGV or SLV catalogues.
NGV 1905 indicates Raeburn as the source. However, another impression, in the National Portrait Gallery, London (reproduced below), is listed as after an unknown artist.
Abercromby (1745-95) was a Scottish lawyer and essayist.
