Photolithography is a planographic printing process using plates prepared from photographic negatives. The image is taken from the marble replica of Chantrey's bust made in 1828, for which Scott gave additional sittings and which Lockhart felt possessed 'the character of a second original' (Memoirs of the Life of Sir Walter Scott, Bart. (Edinburgh: R. Cadell, 1837-38), VII, 429).
