Ancient Castle of Na-Ga-Gus-Ko,
Lew Chew [2nd litho]

Variations in Lithographs

 
There appear to be several versions of this lithograph with slightly different characteristics. I have broken these down into two major types.

 

Type I

Type I  Tucker book.
Has smoother ground in foreground and no smaller stones visible in the right foreground. There are 7-8 figures going up the hill. Type I has the standard titles: "From nature by Heine, Figures by Brown" (left), "T.Sinclair's Lith, Phila" (right), nothing in the middle.
Type IIa

Type IIa
There are 11-13 figures going up the hill. You see a cluster of 5-6 people at the top of the group, not 1-2 as you do in Type I. The title/lettering is the same as in Type I.

 

Type IIb  Nicholson book.
Similar to Type IIa but the title/lettering reads: "From nature by Heine (left), "T. Sinclair's Lith, Phila (Center)", "Figure by Brown" (right). The lettering is all outside the image box.

 

Type I - Entire Picture
Type IIa - Entire Picture

 
Type I has definitely been attributed to a Beverley Tucker printing of the Narrative.

Type IIb has definitely been attributed to a Nicholson printing of the Narrative.
