Thames Police

This is an original etching by James Whistler.  The title is: "Thames Police"  It was created in 1859 as part of his Thames Set series on life on the river.  The image measures 5 15/16X8 7/8 inches.  Printed on a thin laid type paper.  Very richly inked, the Fifth state of Six.  An early rich inking.  Good condition, there is a tear upper right corner of the border, away from the image area.  Enough border for proper presentation.
