Unrecorded, a suite of five engravings for Thomas Campbell’s Theodric (1824), though seemingly not intended for inclusion in any particular edition. 

Corbould (1787– 1844) was taught by his father Richard Corbould, then by Fuseli at the Royal Academy, where he was a friend of Flaxman, Stothard, and Benjamin West (for whom he also sat as a model).  He was occupied for thirty years with drawings of the ancient marbles of the British Museum, and provided a similar service for the sculptures of private collectors such as the Duke of Bedford.  The image of Victoria on the Penny Black was based on a drawing by Corbauld.
