- Acquisition date
- Acquisition notes
- 1843,0607.1 to 233 is the so-called 'second' collection of etchings by Rembrandt purchased by the Trustees from W & G Smith in 1843 to form a series that was intended to be consulted by visitors to the Print Room, in order to save wear and tear on the 'first' series, which contained the rare states and valuable items and which was to be reserved for connoisseurs and experts in the subject. See Josi's report to the Trustees dated 5 July 1843. Since 1843 many of the prints have been sold or exchanged as duplicates.
