4.  Nocturne Furnace
The etchings sold were Nocturne: Furnace (K.213), Upright Venice (K.205) and The Rialto (K.211). Wunderlich only wanted one impression of Nocturne: Furnace (K.213), so the second was returned (E. G. Brown to JW, 8 March 1884, #01169). Eventually these etchings were published by Messrs. Dowdeswell in A Set of twenty-six etchings of Venice, 1886 (the second 'Venice set') (K.196-216, 233-237). (excat 6).
