Description: From a later edition of the complete works of Deuchar (A Collection of etchings after the most eminent Masters …, first published in 1803.) This ed. which varies quite a bit from the earlier version, with less prints, but many more prints by Deuchar himself and others, we estimate was printed around 1870. The original work, was printed in a limited number for Deuchar’s art friends. As such they are quite scarse. The date in our titles is the date the etchings were originally etched.
