There is a delightful road running inland up the Vale of Teifi, through Llwechryd, with its old bridge and the unusual Victorian lodge and eighteenth-century mansion of Castell Maelgwyn to Cenarth [Wales]. with its falls, its attractive old bridge, church and inn, and its coracle-making industry on one of the loveliest reaches of the river. Further up the river is Newcastle Emlyn on the Carmarthenshire bank…(Fraser, Wales, II, 323-24).
I. The landscape with river has been etched in and there is a man fishing on the right bank. There is faint work in the river, which obscures the flow of water. With the inscription Kenarth S. Wales 1864 S. Haded (E,l.l.)
II.Published in Études à l’Eau-forte (No. XIX). Additional etched work in the trees, cows, and on the bank at right. The faint work in the river has been burnished out so that the water sweeping around the bank is much clearer. Horizontal shading added to the sky.
Schneiderman (1983) p. 159.
