Extremely rare engraving of Admiral Horatio Nelson's water borne funeral procession of January 8th 1806. Published less than one month later, on February 1st 1806, by G. Thompson of Long Lane, West Smithfield. Condition is generally grubby with some smallish tears to periphery and paper loss to lower right corner. It is back onto stout rag type paper of the period and was at one time the property of a Captain Davis of Solyhull. Unframed and no attempt has be made to clean or restore so should respond well in the right hands. Pre-dates the better known and larger print from the same view point by George Thompson that was published nearly two months later on March 28th and was thus in the nature of a preliminary proof print to envisage how the worked up and finished work would appear. This very rare print does have some condition issues but is priced accordingly. Dimensions approximately 370 by 470mm

Sheet 395 x 545mm (15½ x 21½") An intense battle scene, with British infantry closing in on the French cavalry from both sides. A mortar explodes in the foreground and cannon balls streak across the sky. This rare print's paper extends beyond the window mount and, unlike many others that have survived, has suffered no loss of image, dedications etc. It has some foxing however and two vertical light burns (browning). In the flesh these are less intrusive than the photo might suggest but are present all the same - some careful restoration should improve this print overall however. £325 including postage to any UK address.

Engraving by William Woollett after West's painting of the Death of General Wolfe - published January 1776 by Woollett, Boydell and Ryalnd in London.

Ageing and damage as seen in sixth photo but no paper loss and would restore and lay with little trouble. price includes postage to UK address. James Wolfe (2 January 1727 – 13 September 1759) was a British Army officer, known for his training reforms and remembered chiefly for his victory in 1759 over the French at the Battle of the Plains of Abraham in Quebec as a major general.Wolfe's part in the taking of Quebec in 1759 earned him lasting fame, and he became an icon of Britain's victory in the Seven Years' War and subsequent territorial expansion. He was depicted in the painting The Death of General Wolfe, which became famous around the world. Wolfe was posthumously dubbed "The Hero of Quebec", "The Conqueror of Quebec", and also "The Conqueror of Canada", since the capture of Quebec led directly to the capture of Montreal, ending French control of the country.
