The scarce first edition of Haid's mezzotint portrait of Franklin. Haid made two portraits of Franklin using the same captions and architectural setting. This first version is based on the painting by Benjamin Wilson, showing Franklin in a wig. The later version shows Franklin in fur hat. [Bubb Kuyper auction 63G-5932, 2015].
