[Set of four lithographs of Walton on the Naze, Essex]
Four very rare lithographs on india, each seet approx 215 x 305mm (8½ x 12"). Trimmed. Edges bit tatty.
Remarkable set of views of Walton on the Naze in Essex, probably amongst the earliest works of the engraver Frederick Stacpoole (1813-1907). Stacpoole would become the leading engraver of his generation by making large engravings after artists such as Edwin Landseer and William Holman Hunt, but these lithographs are based on his detailed and personal observations of the town. The sights visible include one of the first piers built in England (shortly after its construction in 1830), and the Naze Tower built in 1720
