The Whistler Estate, bequeathed by Rosalind Birnie Philip, 1958
GLAHA 46924

Distinguished visitors watched the Review from massive troopships. Whistler had printed eight impressions of Troop Ships by 19 August 1887, nine on 25 August, and thirteen on 1 September. A note adds that at least thirteen (there was a query about another one) were still available on 26 September.1. Whistler did not sell many - six were left in his estate and passed to his sister-in-law Rosalind Birnie Philip.
