Carrington Bowles (1724 - 1793) was member of a highly successful family of publishers. He worked with his father, John Bowles, at St. Pauls Church Yard, London. They published many maps and illustrated books.
He created a notable manual to teach people how to draw.
Bowles said it was "for the curious young gentlemen and ladies that study and practice the commendable art of drawing, colouring, etc."
He gave it a most difficult to remember title. Are you ready for this?
"Bowles's New Preceptor in Drawing: Consisting of Variety of Classes, Viz. Whole Figures in Divers Positions ... Perspective Views of Seaports, Forts, Ruins Being the Close Study ... of the Late Mr. Lens ... Engraved by Himself" !
Here are some of the engravings for you to choose from. They are genuine antiques from the late 1700s.
