Blake's plate was crudely copied in a line engraving bearing Stothard's name and the date 1 June 1799 which was inserted in some copies of the 1799 edition; the same design was copied more skillfully in a stipple engraving lacking the names of designer and engraver and dated 7 January 1800 which is found in other copies of the 1799 edition. Cf. Bentley.
Plates after Thomas Stothard; plate opposite page 276 is a copy of William Blake's original engraving titled: Clarence's dream.
