Carr was a notorious writer, poet and illustrator, best known for his series of aquatint plate travel books depicting British and Continental views, such as this one of the Rhine. He was Knighted in 1805 and satirized by Walter Scott and others. Byron begged to be omitted from his Descriptive Travels in Spain (1811) and pilloried Carr in a cancelled passage of English Bards and Scotch Reviewers (1809). His work is in the British Museum.
