PF, under 1868 (acc.nos.p.183.18-1 or 19-1); see also AR 1870-71, p.34: Engravings (framed), listing one impression (either this or the other one noted).

The “no.7” inscribed at the upper left of this impression is consistent with similar inscriptions on a number of the other works donated by Fawkner in 1868: see e.g. O’Brien Melbourne… 1840 {1868} SLV [WT]
