Melbourne from Yarra harbor ships city view Australia 1888 antique print largeBrian DiMambro -Historical Investments
Melbourne from the Yarra
Issued 1888, UK & Australia
Nice original antique city view print.
Certainly among the largest and earliest views still readily obtainable of this then remote Australian city. Captures it at a 19th century moment like no other image still readily available to the modern collector or dealer.
As originally issued long ago, an actual antique/ vintage printed sheet of paper more than 100 years old, not a modern copy or reprint of an old print.
Sheet remains well preserved, keeping in mind it is not modern or new, so minor flaws to paper unworthy of specific mention are sometimes to be expected. Some light age wear or surface spotting/ soiling, all of which is hopefully visible within the pictures
The paper sheet could show various minor signs of age, but if we are offering it for sale, you can be 100% certain it is entirely worthy of ownership by even the most discerning collector or dealer.
Paper and image remains overall clean & sound. Old maps & prints often display small minor repairs on the back, could have uneven blank margins, might have extraneous fold-lines or other small minor age flaws which do not detract from the visual appeal or value. Condition is carefully considered in arriving at our price.
Attractive and desirable old vintage antique print entirely worthy of hanging for display.
Sheet measures c. 16 7/8" x 12 1/2 " .
Printed area measures c. 11" x 7" (not counting the floral surround which seems to have been overprinted at the time)
A picture is worth a thousand words. The pictures are a major part of the item description. Please examine them closely, as what you see is what we will send you.
