This very grand trade card appears to be the only example known, and also the only evidence that H.D. Smith operated as an engraver and printer. From 1832, 3 Gough Square, near Fleet Street, had been occupied by Richard Gilson Reeve (1803-1889), a renowned engraver and publisher of aquatints, from an artistic family.
