The Battle of Cornhill
Printed c.1770-80's (?), London
Uncommon original antique engraved 18th century British political cartoon print.
Mounted long ago (in the early to mid 19th century) onto colored paper in a scrapbook. The print has been extracted and is offered here as seen.
Printed on quality period paper which may show typical gentle signs of age, perhaps some minor light spotting or foxing, but retains its inherent structural flexibility and soundness.
An appealing, uncommon and interesting image.
In Fair antiquarian condition, print is glued to a backing sheet (likely organic paste), blank margins trimmed away prior to mounting by the early owner, image is foxed, age toned, and with unrelated press clippings on the reverse of the sheet -- please inspect enlargeable photo closely, any noteworthy flaws to the printed surface area should be noticeable within picture provided.

Overall a fascinating artifact that any collector, curator or institution would be happy to own or study.
Priced according to condition.
