1.  Thomas McLean and Co.

2.  ADS
These two pages are facing each other in a ledger book. Also on this page is #13643.

3.  The Dyer
The etchings listed on 8 August were: The Dyer (K.219), Garden (K.210), The Riva, No.2 (K.206), The Bridge (K.204), San Biagio (K.197), Long Lagoon (K.203), Ponte del Piovan (K.209), Upright Venice (K.205), and Islands (K.222). All but The Dyer (K.219) and Islands (K.222) were in A Set of twenty-six etchings of Venice, 1886 (the second 'Venice set') (K.196-216, 233-237). (excat 6). The x marks were added later, but it is not clear if they indicate sold or unsold prints.

4.  The Bridge. Sante Marta
Several etchings are listed with titles that are slightly different from those published. The Bridge (K.204) does indeed show the Campo Santa Marta in Venice, but JW's title, as published, omitted such specific topographical information.

5.  [p. 2]
The second column has a diagonal line through it.
