Published by John Garle Browne, Leicester, the sole owner of the Picture.
Rare lithographic keyplate. 530 x 640mm (20¾ x 25¼"), laid on board for hanging under the original print. A little wear.
The keyplate to the print ''Sir Fenwick Williams and the Officers of his Staff parting with the citizens of Kars'', engraved by Charles George Lewis (1808-60) after Thomas Jones Barker (1815-82), with an index of 38 people and places. The original painting, ''The Capitulation of Kars, 26 November 1855'', is now in the National Army Museum. The Siege of Kars (June 1855) was the last major operation of the Crimean War. The Russians attacked the most important fortress of Eastern Anatolia, which was defended by Ottoman troops led by Canadian general William Fenwick Williams (1800-83). Williams managed to galvanise the dispirited garrison and repulse three major Russian attacks, but eventually cold, famine and an outbreak of cholera forced it to surrender, after which they were allowed to march out with the honours of war and into captivity.
