Holhouse Tower in extra illustrated copy of Thomas Pennant, Tour in Scotland and Voyage to the Hebrides, Vol. 1
This hand-drawn extra-illustration is bound into Robert Riddell's copy of Pennant's 1772 Tour. It was made in 1790 by Thomas Cocking, a draughtsman employed by the antiquary Francis Grose, after a design by Moses Griffith. It captures a view of Holhouse (Hollows) Tower, the seat of Johnny Armstrong on the banks of the river Esk, near Canonby. Riddell's annotation explains the circumstance of the image being copied by Cocking as part of the common practice of borrowing and exchanging drawings in antiquarian circles.
