David Young Cameron’s etching, “The Towers of Charterhouse Godalming”, 1895

David Young Cameron (aka Sir David Young Cameron RA RSA RE) (1865–1945)—one of the leading practitioners of the Etching Revival

“The Towers of Charterhouse Godalming”, 1895, from the series of four plates published in 1895 in E.P. Eardley Wilmot and E.C. Streatfeild’s “Charterhouse Old and New”, printed in London by Frederick Goulding (1842–1909). This impression is from this initial edition, mindful that there is also a later edition published in Stirling by Eneas Mackay (fl.1899–c.1940) in 1910 (see

I am selling this small and very beautiful etching—a print that I would describe as a true “printmaker’s print” as the subtlety of the craftsmanship and sense of aesthetic beauty is (to my eyes) superb—for AU256 in total (currently US$171.61/EUR156.37/GBP134.69 at the time of posting this listing) including postage and handling to anywhere in the world, but not (of course) any import duties/taxes imposed by some countries.
