This truly remarkable work has been published several times and under differing headings. In this case, it comes as a full page image from “The British Workman”, dated July 1st, 1869. The full caption reads: “Sea-Birds: or, The Flamborough Pilots – The Sailors Friends”. The detail is exquisite, so we have been able to show several details from the work below, and have managed to produce prints in A4, A3, a large A2, and even up to A1, all which are currently available. A big wall space is needed for the A1! An exceptional piece of craftsmanship. As there is no engravers mark, we are suspicious that the engraving may also have been executed by Weir, who was originally apprenticed as a wood-block engraver and printer. If that is the case, then it is truly a monumental achievement of multiple craftsmanship.
