In this manner goes the Bride to the Bridegroom, in Illustrations for Samuel Baron's 'A description of the kingdom of Tonqueen', Vol. VI, plate 4.

Drawings of the customs and manners of Tonkin [Hanoi], Vietnam, to accompany the written description of Samuel Baron (fl.1670s-1690s) of Fort St George, Madras. Engraved versions of these illustrations were later published as part of 'A collection of voyages and travels, some now first printed from original manuscripts', ed. Awsham and John Churchill (London, 1732). Manuscript amendments and inscriptions indicate some pre-publication correction, probably by the printer.
