When John Watts
prepared the watercolours for Tonge's Travels he also did some line
drawings, including one of the view that features on the title page. It demanded
a poster which I have done here, with a short quotation from George Tonge's
diary in which he describes the Bay of Naples. In some copies of the poster John
has made Vesuvius active.
