This print is from RARE 1803! elephant folio album — so-called: «First edition impressions»:

«A collection of prints from pictures painted for the purpose of illustrating the dramatic works of Shakespeare by the artists of Great Britain» 

This 1803 edition is remarkable for its strong and clear lines and greatly exceeds more later Boydell editions ( such as Spooner edition of 1852, which prints are most offered for sale)
John Boydell (1719-1804), a London alderman, made his fortune as a publisher of books, illustrations and engravings that were popular in England and on the continent. In 1786, he and a group of associates devised a grand plan to publish an edition of engravings based on commissioned paintings of scenes from Shakespeare’s plays by the best artists of the period. Boydell opened The Shakespeare Gallery in 1789 in Pall Mall to house the painting collection, and the first set of engravings based on the works was issued in 1791.  In 1803 Boydell printed the two-volume elephant folios of all the engravings based on the paintings in the gallery.
