GOODNIGHT, N,C. Untitled. No 67 Publish'd as the Act Directs by N.C.Goonight Engraver. No 14 great Warner Street, Cold bath fields, London Dec.r 3rd 1778. The engraving shows eight children, all Princes or Princesses. The print has hand colouring, possibly contemporary. The leaf has been folded back  along the margins of the print, and secured by sealing wax which curiously rather adds to the look of the print we think. Some toning , edge tearing and dustiness, folded vertically, and horizontally,  but still a pleasing image. N.C Goodnight engraved images for Francis Grose's Military Antiquities, and  some theatrical characters . Possibly intended for scrap albums?  We have seen a similar multi- character plate in a forum online.
