George Nicholson (1787–1878)

Highlands, Scotland”, 1822, from the series, “Lithographic Impressions of Sketches from Nature” (see the description of the title page offered by the British Museum:, initially published in London by Rodwell & Martin (fl.1819–1846) and later published by Rudolph Ackermann (1764–1834) and George Rowney & Co (1783–).

Lettered in the plate below the image: (left) “Bractyn Brig, on the Kelty, W. Highlands. Scotland.”; (right) “G. N. 1822.”

The British Museum offers the following description of this print: “Plate to Rodwell & Martin's edition: view of a large waterfall in a rocky cliff, making a pool in the foreground, dead trees in the left foreground, a figure walking across a bridge on top of the waterfall” (

Condition: a well-printed faultless impression with wide margins in an excellent condition with no tears or significant stains.

I am selling this large and historically significant lithograph, possibly showing what I believe to be the old cast-iron footbridge spanning the Bracklin Falls on the River Keltie in the Western Highlands of Scotland—sadly this bridge was swept away by flooding around 2004 and the surrounding gorge walls have changed significantly since this lithograph was executed (see—for AU$289 in total (currently/approximately US$193.50/ EUR177.90/ GBP152.39 at the time of this listing) including Express Mail (EMS) postage and handling to anywhere in the world, but not (of course) any import duties/taxes imposed by some countries. Note that payment is in Australian dollars (AU$289) as this is my currency.

If you are interested in purchasing this exceptionally rare and large lithograph, please contact me ( and I will send you a PayPal invoice to make the payment easy.
