A large aquatint view of 'St. Anthony's Nose', a 900-foot high promontary on the Hudson River near Peekskill. It was published in the very rare series 'Six Views in North America', aquatinted by John William Edy after Lieut. George Bulteel Fisher, one of only two views of the United States rather than Canada. Fisher (1764-1834) was aide to Prince Edward, major-general of the British Army in Canada, to whom he dedicated the series.
