In 2010 I picked up some bookplates in David’s second hand bookshop in Cambridge. Included was the frontispiece which had at the bottom, along with the date 1815, ‘illustrations mostly by Mrs Griffiths’… there started a search to find out who she was, and what else she might have done. I kept coming back to the same publication, consisting of about 30 volumes. The originals are tiny black and white engravings and this Series attempts some sort of homage to the picture I had built up of her in my head; of Mrs G running around the world after Professor Shaw, making engravings!
