Hello,
I'm the Rare Books Librarian here at the University of Sheffield and am in the process of upgrading our rare book catalogue records. Right now I'm working on Proctor's translation of Telemachus (1774) and have been researching the engraver Proud whose name is added to a couple of the plates in this edition.

The engraving of Richard here is also listed under the record for W. Proud (NPG D23632). Perhaps your W. Proud and Proud are the same person.

What can you tell us?close

There are occasions when we are unsure of the identity of a sitter or artist, their life dates, occupation or have not recorded their family relationships. Sometimes we have not recorded the date of a portrait. Do you have specialist knowledge or a particular interest about any aspect of the portrait or sitter or artist that you can share with us? We would welcome any information that adds to and enhances our information and understanding about a particular portrait, sitter or artist.
