Trial proof (b)
The left section of Boyle’s Farm (No. 71). Harrington states that the plate was divided because of the severe foul-biting, though it is interesting that Haden published the part where this was most severe.
II (Db, 2 impressions; Hb). The water reflections are extended to the boat and new etched work fills in the area clear of the foul-biting near the left plate mark. There is light drywork in the trees and on the left bank. With the signature and date Seymour Haden 1864 (E, l.r.).
