Whistler, James A. M. THE TYRESMITH. Spink 36, Way 27, Levy 41. Lithograph, 1890. From the posthumous edition of 51 impressions printed by Goulding in 1904 (there were 8 lifetime impressions printed by Way in 1890, and an edition of 500-1000 published in The Whirlwind in 1890. See the "Note" below). Printed on laid paper with the Spink catalogue's Watermark Number 211 (M and C Flanking Lion in Shield, impressed in mirror images). With the printed butterfly signature, center left. The image is 6 13/16 x 6 7/8 inches, 170 x 175 mm., the sheet is 16 3/8 x 10 1/2 inches, 416 x 267 mm. Note: Lifetime impressions were signed with the butterfly and printed on laid papers with watermarks different from those of the posthumous edition; the published edition was printed on wove paper without watermark; the watermark thus definitively distinguishes the Goulding printing from that of Way and from the published edition. In excellent condition.
