Hell Gate.
Hell Gate.
Painted by J.Shaw. Engraved by J.Hill.
Published by M.Carey & Son Philadelphia. [Originally 1819-21, this edition Thomas T. Ash, 1835.]
Aquatint. 300 x 385mm. Loss of paper inside platemark on right.
View of Hell Gate, a narrow tidal strait in the East River in New York City, near Astoria. Originally an Anglicisation of the Dutch word 'Hellegat' the treachery of the waters there made 'Hell Gate" appropriate: hundreds of ships had sunk there by the C19th, prompting the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to use 50,000 pounds of explosives to clear the channel of dangerous rocks in 1876. From Joshua Hill's very scarce 'Picturesque Views of American Scenery'. Originally intended to be a series 36 prints, only 18 were completed because the project was not a financial success, which accounts for the scarcity of examples. This second edition is just as uncommon.
