Notes:

1.  2 December 1877
The transaction recorded at the top of this page of a ledger dates from 9 November 1877, but subsequent records were not made in date order. The earliest dates from 3 August 1876 and the last from 2 December 1877. It is presumed that the list was compiled at or shortly after the latter date.

2.  AD
These entries were made in a ledger or account book (see #12987).

3.  Venice
This is a record of subscriptions to a planned set of etchings of Venice. A subscription list was published by C. A. Howell in October 1877 (#02857), and this may have been the occasion for drawing up a list of earlier commitments to the project. JW finally left for Venice in September 1879, and after his return his etchings (K.183-232, 240) were published in two sets.

4.  W. C. Alexander
William Cleverly Alexander (1840-1916), banker and patron [more].

5.  Rose. JA
James Anderson Rose (1819-1890), solicitor [more].

6.  Avery. S. P.
Samuel Putnam Avery (1822-1904), print-publisher, collector and philanthropist [more].

7.  Sutherland. T.
Thomas Sutherland (1834-1922), Liberal MP, Chairman of the P. and O. line [more].

8.  (Howell)
Charles Augustus ('Owl') Howell (1840? - d.1890), entrepreneur [more]. See also #13615.

9.  Singleton C
Charles James Singleton, Jr (1841-1918), accountant [more].

10.  Irving. Henry
John Henry Brodribb alias Henry Irving (1838-1905), actor, Director and manager of the Lyceum Theatre [more].

11.  McLean
Thomas M. McLean (b. ca 1832), print dealer and publisher [more].

12.  Bright E. B.
Edward Brailsford Bright (1831-1913), writer on science.

13.  Knoedler & Co (Goupil & Co
Knoedler and Company were art and print dealers. The entry suggests that the subscription was obtained through Goupil and Co., who had a London office.

14.  Fine Art Society. (Huish)
Marcus Bourne Huish (1843 - d.1921), barrister, writer and art dealer, Director of the Fine Art Society [more]. The first set of twelve etchings, Mr Whistler's Etchings of Venice, 1880 (the first 'Venice Set') (K. 183-189, 191-195). (excat 5), was commissioned by the Fine Art Society in 1879 and published by them in 1880.
