24 Portraits in set: Richard Tompson published mezzotints, circa 1680

73 mezzotints published by Richard Tompson published between 1678 and 1679, mainly after portraits by Sir Peter Lely and some after Sir Anthony Van Dyck and Sir Godfrey Kneller.

They were also business partners as art auctioneers from around 1674 onwards.
