Print: Originally published by Baxter in 1843 and listed by Courtney Lewis as CL 106 but then republished by Baxter in 1859. This time the plate had been slightly trimmed a small amount on all sides. This can be clearly seen on this impression as the word ‘The’ has been removed and the first three letters of the word ‘Wreck’ now extend out past the edge of the print. Always an interesting and quite hard to find print.
Under the print is engraved "Wreck of the Reliance (East Indiaman) off the French coast near Boulogne, Nov. 12th, 1842," on the left and on the right is "Designed & Engraved by G. Baxter from the description of R. Dickson, the only English surviver (sic). London: Published by G. Baxter, 3, Charterhouse Square, Novr. 1st, 1843,"
This a Mockler reprint from Baxter’s steel plate, published in his ‘Mockler portfolio’ in 1894. They were printed in small numbers and, as they are printed in monochrome, show up the incredible amount of detail in Baxter’s plate that you wouldn’t normally notice. For more details please see:
Size (cm ht x w): 37.4 x 49.6 (sheet)
