Original Charles William Bartlett woodcut.

Delicate proof impression printed in shades of blue, green, sand-yellow, orange and pink inks, as issued for the only edition. The edition was printed in two colour variants, pale blue or this so-called “gold” colour scheme, using two tones of brown in the foreground.

The key block for this print was also used for The Heat of Benares (Miles 17) – printed in an entirely different colour scheme.

On cream Japan paper with full margins and deckle edge. Disturbance in sheet at upper left (the price of this print has been adjusted to allow for this defect), otherwise good condition.
