      If its any help the image you enquired about appears to be a steel engraving, probably executed circa 1840 (plus or minus 10 years) and, from the size of the background hatching,  blown up about 2-3 x along each dimension.  From Laura's info would seem that the Kneller (or a secondary derivative image) was the source of the engraving.
       
      Hope this persiflage of use.
