Building A Ship Burning a Ship c. 1850 Heck antique detailed engravingBrian DiMambro- Antique & Vintage Maps, Prints, Books & Gold Coins
Issued c. 1850-55, NY & Germany by G. Heck
Engraved by Henry Winkles
Fine original antique engraving printed in the mid-19th century, on quality paper which retains its inherent structural flexibility and soundness.
An unusual type of depiction unique to the 19th century.
In Good+ to near VG or better condition, some noticable light damp staining in the corners but this is mostly in the blank margins, is not offensive and does not detract from the overall attractiveness of the image [note: we grade very conservatively and always seek to disclose any noteworthy flaws].
The printed area remains visually pleasing, a fine impression of an interesting antique image which will look nice when displayed.
Sheet measures c. 9 1/4" H x 11 3/4" W.
Printed area measures c. 7 3/4" H x 10" W
