Captn. Smyth del. L. Haghe Lith. Day & Haghe Lithers. to the Queen.
London, J. Murray, Albermarle St. [1838.]
Lithograph, sheet 140 x 210mm. 5½ x 8¼".
In 1836, command of Terror was given to Sir George Back (1796 - 1878) for an expedition to the northern part of Hudson Bay, Canada, with a view to entering Repulse Bay, where landing parties were to be sent out to determine whether the Boothia Peninsula was an island or a peninsula. However, Terror failed to reach Repulse Bay and barely survived the winter off Southampton Island, at one point being forced 40 feet up the side of a cliff by the ice. In the spring of 1837, an encounter with an iceberg further damaged the ship, which was in a sinking condition by the time Back was able to beach the ship on the coast of Ireland at Lough Swilly. Plate to Back's 'Narrative of an expedition in H.M.S. Terror : undertaken with a view to geographical discovery on the Arctic shores, in the years 1836-37'.

Drawn & Litho.d by S.R. Smyth / 1852
Lithograph on india, printed area approx 170 x 240mm (6¾ x 9½"). Scarce.
Very unusual view of the chalk headland of Beachy Head in East Sussex, drawing attention to two accidents which occurred on the cliff within a short space of time. The second befell the printmaker himself who was fortunately saved and perhaps made this print in part to highlight the risks (a key identifies the exact places where the accidents took place).
