From "The Hudson River Port-Folio." Painted by W. G. Wall. Engraved by J. Hill. Third state of three.

The Hudson River Port-Folio contains twenty aquatints views of the Hudson River valley engraved by John Hill after paintings by William G. Wall. This is one of the finest set of views of the Hudson River ever published. The Hudson River runs 315 miles from the Adirondack Mountains to New York City. The views start near Lake Luzerne and end with a view of New York City from Governor's Island. The original proposal was for twenty-four prints; however, only twenty were ever published between 1821 to 1825.
