His grandson, the 3rd Baronet, was raised to the Earl of Bute in 1703. In 1766, the 4th Earl married the Hon. Charlotte Jane, daughter of the 2nd Viscount Windsor, whose father had married into the family of the Earls of Pembroke, thereby eventually acquiring vast estates in South Wales, and in 1776 becoming Baron Cardiff.

The plates also include five views of Prague. ***"Prout was a pioneer lithographer who employed the process as early as 1817, when most of his fellow artists were ignorant or contemptuous of it. His friend and disciple Ruskin specifically exempted Prout from his dismissal of lithography in The Elements of Drawing, noting that "all his published lithographic sketches are of the greatest value, wholly unrivalled in power of composition, and in love and feeling of architectural subjects" (p.339)...Unfortunately these lithographs are now assiduously sought after as single prints, and complete copies of the book [Flanders and Germany] have virtually disappeared."
