Marine School, Dublin, Looking up the Liffey.
London. Publish'd June 1796, by Ja.s Malton.
Aquatint with very large margins. Plate 315 x 430mm (12½ x 17"). Mount burn around platemark; slight foxing and abrasions in sky.
A view of ships, merchant vessels and a dinghy in the centre, on the Liffey. A fine view. According to Maurice Craig, this print is really a view of the approach to Dublin by sea, with the Custom House in the distance on the right, rather than a view of the Hibernian Marine School which is on the left. From Malton's "A Picturesque and Descriptive View of the City of Dublin"
