The artist for this eighteenth-century pamphlet describing the horrors of the French invasion of Swabia, Germany, was William Wadsworth. According to Sinclair Hamilton, Wadsworth lived in Hartford, Connecticut, and worked as a freelance engraver for Hudson & Goodwin. No activities outside that press have been recorded.
