Dated 1813 hand colored aquatint ( a method of etching a printing plate so that tones similar to watercolor washes can be reproduced) of a whaling scene, drawn by John Heaviside Clark (1770-1863) and engraved by Matthew Dubourg. This plate entitled: "A Ships Boat Attacking A Whale." Great scene with lots of drama and action. Sight measurement is 8 1/4" by 10 1/4, framed to 9 3/8" by 11 3/8". The frame is a dense dark solid wood and may be ebony. Original framer's label on back. The framing dates to the 1st 1/2 of the 20th century. This is one of 2 whaling aquatints I'm offering. They are taken from "Foreign Field Sports, Fisheries, Sporting Anecdotes &c.&c." published by Edward Orme, London 1814. This is plate I of the whaling prints included in the book and the hand coloring is original to the 1814 publication. Print has some faint printer's smudges above the Dubourg signature, but otherwise appears mint, frame has thin age crack upper right o/w fine condition. Not examined out of the frame.
