Notes An early print of William Beller's view Bywell Bay in Northumberland. People walk along the river in the foreground, a man fishes, men in a row boat laying fishing nets in the river, a fortified tower on the right and the town along the river bank in background. The print is dedicated to William Fenwick of Bywell. This print is one of a series of eight William Bellers made depicting the Lake District.

Pierre Charles Canot (1710-1777) French printmaker and publisher who worked in London from around 1735. He specialised in marine subjects.

James Mason (1710 - c.1785) was a British engraver, publisher, and printseller, best known for his series of views of stately homes.

William Bellers (fl. 1749-1773) was a British, painter, draughtsman, printmaker, printer, and publisher who lived in London. He is known for his views of the Lake District, but also sold prints from his address. He may have been the son of William Bellers of Oxford, who sold Oxford and Cambridge prints, but he may have been William Bellers who matriculated at Oxford on April 9, 1734, who had a licence to paint in and around the University.
