The Beauties and Antiquities of the County of Sussex was published by the artist James Rouse, a first folio edition in 1825, and a second octavo edition in 1827. The publication contained 149 views of historic buildings in the county. According to the artist the second edition, from which this plate comes, was published so that those living in the County who could not afford the expensive folio edition might benefit from this edition. In his preface he says that he chose the medium of lithography rather than aquatint because of its 'generally acknowledged superiority in pourtraying [sic] Architectural Subjects, particularly where operated upon by the mouldering effects of time.'
