Item details

Reference: Comstock 30:  ‘The plate was etched for and given to the Royal Society of Painter-Etchers and Engravers for its annual presentation to members of the Print Collectors Club in 1923. Before printing of the final state the plate was steel-faced.’…  ‘The subject, which is the south side of the church of St. Peter, at Laneham-on-Trent, Nottinghamshire, a somewhat remote spot  in quiet country by the river, is a detail of simple, dignified, ancient native building, retaining the beauty of masonry when unchanged except by the touch of weather and of time.’
