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 (), 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.

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