The plate was not published until 1872, when Philip Gilbert Hamerton included it in The Portfolio. In 1875,Hamerton published it in his book, Examples of Modern Etching. In 1880, he published it for a third time in his seminal book, Etching and Etchers. The later impressions cannot be compared to the quality of this first published issue.
