Issued c.1830-40, Europe.
Beautiful panoramic birds-eye view of this Italian city.
Beautiful near miniature antique printed (likely engraved) image with wonderful early hand color heightened with gum arabic. A gem of a view, very pleasing visually, utterly superior visual quality almost resembling an original work of art. Atmospheric sense of weather is well captured, a pleasing subtle ambiance of light and shadow across the scene and in the distant sky.
