A large aquatint view showing Durham Abbey rising above the trees on the banks of the River Wear. The rare view was aquatinted by John William Edy after George Bulteel Fisher (1764-1834) who, having studied under Paul Sandby at the Royal Military Academy in Woolwich, continued to paint during his military career. As a young lieutenant he served as aide to Prince Edward Augustus (father of Queen Victoria), visiting Canada with him and publishing a rare series 'Six Views in North America' (also engraved by Edy) in 1795-6. The following year Fisher and Edy published six views of Gibraltar. The British Museum have both these sets but we have been unable to trace another example of this print of Durham.

A scene showing the destruction of HMS Boyne off Spithead. On the morning of May 1st 1795 it was observed that HMS Boyne was on fire so orders were made to assist the fleet, the whole crew were saved but the fire could not be put out. Eventually the cables anchoring the ship were burnt and she floated on the current. The greatest damage was done by the guns which were loaded and started firing at the crowd which had gathered to see the spectacle and three men were killed on HMS Queen Charlotte by rogue shot. HMS Boyne eventually blew up at 5.30pm.
