This very well known, greatly prized but relatively rare etching by WLW needs little introduction. Not only is it scarce but sadly, copies of it that do come to light are often blighted by foxings and other unsightly stains and marks, the products of ageing for over 100 years. These reproductions have, of course, no foxings or stains and are unfaded.
