I was able to proceed without the images.

You have a A colour proof mezzotint by the English artist Walter Al***** ***** (1862-1908).

He produced a number of mezzotints based on the works of various artists of earlier periods.

Your Water Al***** ***** mezzotint has a retail value range of $250.00 to $350.00.

Here is a brief biography on:

Walter Al***** ***** was born in England in 1862. He supposedly studied with an obscure artist named Jean Ballins. Cox became a skilled printmaker, working in color mezzotint, reproducing works by the masters and his contemporaries. Most of these mezzotints are portraits but he also worked with landscapes and historical scenes. There is little biographical information for him at this time.

Walter A. Cox died in 1908 in England.
