Print:  Baxter CL 355. Baxter only ever published this print specifically for the Religious Tract Society publication, Sights in all Seasons.
On the right is sometimes "Baxter's Patent Oil Printing, 11, Northampton Square" but in some prints, as this one, it unusually says "Printer", instead of printing.
Some copies of this print are found with ruled lines to the sky to give tone, as this copy. The plate was obviously kept by the publishers and Kronheim printed later editions, his copies also show the ruled lines which indicates that Baxter added the lines, rather than removed them. We have early unruled copies that show the word printing inferring that printer wasn’t an error but amended by Baxter? Or possibly this was a duplicated plate
