Edward Rooker

Depiction of the south elevation of the third lighthouse built upon the Eddystone Rocks, near Plymouth. The third lighthouse was built following the destruction of earlier versions designed by Henry Winstanley (1644-1703), and John Rudyard (or Rudyerd; 1650- ca.1718). The Royal Society recommended the civil engineer John Smeaton (1724-1792) for the job; his lighthouse was completed in 1759. Plate 8 of A narrative of the building and a description of the construction of the Edystone lighthouse with stone, by John Smeaton (London, 1791). The Royal Society's copy was donated by the author on 20 January 1791. The plate is inscribed: 'South ELEVATION of the STONE LIGHTHOUSE completed upon the EDYSTONE in 1759. Shewing the Prospect of the nearest Land, as it appears from the Rocks in a clear calm Day.' Includes scale: 1 inch = 6 feet

Original: line engraving. 1763
