After Whistler's death, impressions were shown in the Memorial Exhibitions including the comprehensive show at the Grolier Club in New York in 1904, and at the Copley Society in Boston in the same year, and in Paris in 1905. 21 An impression from the collection of King Edward VII was exhibited as 'Lord Wolseley' at the Whistler Memorial show in London in 1905. 22 A correspondent of the Morning Post was mystified by the numbering of the ISSPG catalogue:
