Cannons Siege Towers Battering Rams 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 top corner (mostly in blank margin), short edge tear at bottom right blank margin (now mended with archival tape and outside any printed area) but this 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" W x 11 3/4" H.
Printed area measures c. 7 3/4" W x 10" H
