This is a reprint from Baxter’s plates by Frederick Mockler in 1894 for inclusion in his Portfolio. Full details can be read on this https://www.georgebaxter.com/articles/frederick-mockler-and-the-mockler-portfolio-of-baxter-prints
The explosion in this Mockler reprint, is a much larger than in the actual published Baxter print. I can’t see that Mockler would have ever amended any of Baxter plates, the previous owner was Le Blond who never issued this print, the same for Vincent Brooks before him, so did Baxter alter it? If so, are there prints by him with the larger explosion? One has never been found …as yet
