The Cowgate, Edinburgh - JAMES MCBEY
Etching, 1904-05, Hardie/Carter 33, edition 26. 8 x 5 in. Signed and dated in the plate, upper left. Signed and numbered "XIX" in ink. This is a fine, dark impression of this rare early work. The paper is a fine antique laid and the margins are full. Fine condition apart from an extremely faint suggestion of an old adhesive on the verso. The Cowgate is a very old street dating from the 15th century, not far from Edinburgh Castle.
