Francis Grose (c.1731-1791) was an antiquary and draughtsman responsible for the "Antiquities Of England And Wales". The work was published in six volumes between 1773 and 1787, and the 52 maps contained therein were reprints (with some alterations) of John Seller's "Anglia Contracta", first published in 1695. After a painting by Nathaniel Dance, this rather attractive portrait of the gross Grose was engraved by Bartolozzi and published by S.Hooper. The National Portrait Gallery hold an example - NPG D32253.
