Notes From the Oxford Almanac for the Year 1743, from Oxonia Antiqua Restaurata by Joseph Skelton.

Skelton began publishing parts to this work from 1818 but it was not until 1820 that the project was completed and was only fully published three years later in 1823.

Joseph Skelton (1781 - 1850) was an English engraver of topographical and antiquarian subjects. He is best-known for his plates in 'Oxonia Antiqua Illustrata' (1823); 'Engraved Illustrations of Antiente Arms and Armour from the Collection at Goodrich Court from the Drawings, and with the Descriptions of Dr. Meyrick' (1830) (2 vols); and Girault's 'Les Beautes de la France' (1850). He settled in France in the latter part of his life and was elected FSA in 1844. His brother William Skelton was also an engraver.
