Etching.  1859.  

151x225mm  [209x271]

Ref: Kennedy 44 state ii/iii.

A fine, strong yet delicate impression in black ink on cream laid paper in the rare second state of three.

Thames  Police was ultimately issued in A Series of Sixteen Etchings of Scenes on the Thames and Other Subjects, now more commonly known as The Thames Set. This first appeared as a coherent entity in 1871, more than a decade after many of the prints were made. The present impression pre-dates this issue.
