Notes:

1.  [13 January 1887]
This is the last date written on the account.

2.  Fine Art Society
This is JW's record of his printing of Mr Whistler's Etchings of Venice, 1880 (the first 'Venice Set') (K. 183-189, 191-195). (excat 5), for the Fine Art Society between 16 February 1881 and 13 January 1887. The gap in printing in 1886 was due to his concentration on A Set of twenty-six etchings of Venice, 1886 (the second 'Venice set') (K.196-216, 233-237). (excat 6) for Messrs Dowdeswell. He never completed the edition of some etchings for the FAS. They had a continual battle to arrange for the delivery and price of prints (see for instance the interchange on 13 January 1887, see #01184 and #01185).

3.  MsD
The list was written by Charles James Whistler Hanson (1870-1935), engineer, son of JW and Louisa Fanny Hanson [more]. The list was actually written with the etchings listed on the left, and dates written vertically at top.
