G. W.'s Dioramic Views, No. 1. Church of St. Juan.
London: Reeves and Son... E. Morgan, No date [circa 1835.]. Mounted hand-coloured lithographic transformational print, 225 x 282 mm., with mounted label below. 'On raising this Print gradually against the light it will be seen to undergo a complete change from noonday to midnight at which time the Church appears entirely enveloped in darkness with the exception of those parts lit up for the observance of Mass...the empty chairs become occupied by devotees, the lamps and chandeliers appear to be suddenly ignited.. casting their dim light on the Monuments around. The effect is seen best by candle light.' Few spots on mount, else very good.
