Description:

Rare lithograph of HMS Nelson, named after Admiral Horatio Nelson, was laid down by John Elder & Co. in Govan, Scotland on 2 November 1874, launched on 4 November 1876, and completed in July 1881.[3] She sailed for the Australia Station after commissioning and became the flagship there in 1885. She remained on station until returning home in January 1889.

This series of views were the first examples of the new printing technique of photo lithography. In this method the plate was photo sensitised and the image was then transferred by photography. The plate then was inked and printed in the traditional way. Rare.

From Picturesque Views of Australia.
