“You might suppose that John Nash studies are an agreeable and gentle pastime and there is little excite. Well, that may be true some of the time, but I received a letter on 25 June 2020 enclosing a photograph of an etching recently bought on eBay. It was clearly by John Nash, though I had never seen it before, nor had a number of other Nash enthusiasts. Less than a week later the dovecote illustrated was identified as being the one at Monks Risborough in Buckinghamshire. It is a lovely etching. It was clear that a celebratory publication was required. The Wood-Engravings of John Nash was published in 1987; since then two wood-engravings have been newly discovered (one in a couple of formats) and a preliminary proof of an engraving and ten preparatory drawings of engravings have become available from the John Nash Estate. Altogether they make an interesting and instructive book.” – Jeremy Greenwood
