WILLIAM DANIELL R.A.

A VOYAGE ROUND GREAT BRITAIN

1814-1825

Click to view Minicat Catalogue

In 1814, artist engraver William Daniell set out to record the people, places, towns and villages around Britain's coastline. Eleven years later he completed his magnum opus having travelled from Land's End to John 0'Groats via the west coast, then back to Land's End via the east.

The result was a collection of 308 aquatint engravings, the last great artist's voyage before photography was invented.

By a most remarkable piece of good fortune, the actual original aquatint printing plates survived and were acquired by the Tate Gallery Publications Department in the late seventies. Alecto Historical Editions was invited to take a limited number of impressions for the Tate and their Patrons and Friends in 1978. After proofing in our studios, just 100 impressions from each antique copperplate were taken for the published edition, which sold out.

However, we have available in our archive, a small selection of original prints from our exhibition sets. If you would like to acquire any of these prints, which have a plate size 9" x 11", please let us know. Original prints are priced at GBP 55.00. V.A.T. and shipping are charged extra. Please consult the list of prints and send us your choices in order of preference.
