Not on view

Frontispiece to the first of two volumes by Samuel Jebb on Mary, Queen of Scots, published in 1725 with Latin, French and Spanish translations. The print was also used in "The History of the Life and Reign of Mary Queen of Scots," published anonymously by Jebb later that same year (hence discrepancies with Labanoff 156 and O'Donoghue 196.100, which both give the inscription "From an original painting of Frederico Zucchero.").
After the Carlton portrait, previously attributed to Federico Zuccaro. The portrait is no longer believed to depict Mary, Queen of Scots, although the woman in the Carlton painting has not yet been identified.
