This lithograph is after a first edition copperplate engraving by P Canot after James Lambert. The first edition was published by Lambert in Lewes and Robert Sayer in London, 1765 and was the earliest engraved view of the town.

The two windmills to the left are on the East Cliff. James Lambert, the artist can be seen below, painting the view.  To their immediate right and fronting the sea is Dr Russell's House and next to that  is Woodgate’s Library, with colonnade of arches on the facade.  The path on the far right leads up to St. Nicholas church.
