A large aquatint with hand coloring titled, “LORD NELSON’S FUNERAL PROCESSION BY WATER, FROM GREENWICH HOSPITAL TO WHITE HALL, JAN.8TH, 1806.” The print was published March 1 1806 by Edward Orme. The following are printed on the print, “Turner pinxt.” Lower left, “Published and sold March 1 1806, by Edwd. Orme Engraver_Printseller to the King and Royal Family, 59 Bond Street London.” center and “J. Clark & H. Merke sculp.” lower right. Underneath the title, centered, “Taken from Bank-side, Exhibiting a view of St. Pauls, London Bridge &e”

The plate size is 14 x 19 ¾ inches, the trimmed sheet 14 ¼ x 20 1/8 inches. The frame is 22 ¾ x 28 ¼ inches.

The artist is probably Charles Turner (1774-1857).

Condition: the good news is that the colors are generally bright and the printing crisp. The print was folded in the center and there is evidence on the back that it was at one time mounted in a folio. There are paper repairs in the lower left corner and the upper right where there is also a repaired tear in the image.

As well as being a very detailed and interesting view of the procession and of the Thames I think this is a rare print as the only copy that is not a reproduction I have found on-line is at The National Maritime Museum in England.
