Additional Information about the Print

The plate was not published till 1872, when Hamerton included it in The Portfolio. This impression is probably from Hamerton’s Examples of Modern Etching, 1875. Hamerton would issue it a third time in the 1880 edition of Etching and Etchers, reflecting his admiration for the plate which he considered “in its own way, … is like a pearl or diamond without flaw”.
