Signed in pencil.
Ref: Dickins 72; Harvey-Lee 99

Very fine signed proof impression from the only edition, as issued in William Walcot’s most important portfolio, The Arteries of Great Britain in 1922.

The Arteries of Great Britain was the most important series of etchings issued by William Walcot and includes the finest of his river views of our great cities. In this etching W.Walcot’s architectural passion is satisfied by the long and dignified façade of the Custom House as seen from the Surrey side of the Thames.

On pale cream wove paper, with full margins and deckle edge. Very fine condition.
