3.  Aug 28
Listed on 28 August were The Dyer (K.219), Nocturne (K.184), Garden (K.210), Upright Venice (K.205), Long Venice (K.212), Little Salute (K.220), The Bridge (K.204), The Balcony (K.207), San Biagio (K.197), San Giorgio (K.201), possibly Long Lagoon (K.203), Fish-Shop, Venice (K.218), Nocturne: Furnace (K.213), Fruit-Stall (K.200), The Riva, No.2 (K.206), The Rialto (K.211), Stables (K.225), Turkeys (K.199), Lagoon: Noon (K.216), La Salute: Dawn (K.215), Ponte del Piovan (K.209). Many of these were in A Set of twenty-six etchings of Venice, 1886 (the second 'Venice set') (K.196-216, 233-237). (excat 6). Several were unpublished and very rare. Only Nocturne (K.184) was in Mr Whistler's Etchings of Venice, 1880 (the first 'Venice Set') (K. 183-189, 191-195). (excat 5), and since that was published by the Fine Art Society it is not clear how JW was able to sell it at this date.
