Interesting lot of four late-18th century English prospect views. Copper engraved urban prints with original hand color.
Images all display strong clear visible signs of handling and time, but still displays a fine patina and noble visual appeal. The video captures the appearance and various old repairs done on the back. Poor physical condition, but somehow appealing and fascinating survivals.
Too many condition issues to mention individually, video shows each print in detail to see how it survives. The old repairs are fascinating.
