Windsor Castle was not published. It is however related to the 'Jubilee Set'.


Charles Lang Freer (1856-1919) was generous in lending the one known impression (Graphic with a link to impression #K3300102), to an exhibition in Chicago in 1893, to the show organised by the Caxton Club in Chicago in 1900 and to the Grolier Club in New York in 1904. 5

However, it appears that another impression was shown at H. Wunderlich & Co. in New York in 1898: this has not been located. 6

In addition, an impression was shown at the Whistler Memorial exhibition in London in 1905. 7 Again, this has not been located.

6: New York 1898 (cat. no. 231).

Charles Lang Freer (1856-1919) bought the sole known impression from H. Wunderlich & Co. of New York in 1888 (Graphic with a link to impression #K3300102). It was bequeathed with the rest of his important collection to the Freer Gallery of Art.
