Aquatint Engraving of Magdalen Tower, From The Bridge, Oxford, Printed in 1802, Very Good Condition, Large Original Engraving

Offered at $450.- SOLD

A lovely original Aquatint Engraving of Oxford, from 1802. It’s a very large engraving with fine details and excellent colouring. There is a very slight bit of foxing at the top of the engraving. The overall condition is good and is clean of any serious damage. It’s an impressive print, in size and overall condition.

The frame is black and likely from the later part of the 19th century. The glass is wavy, which is very desirable, as it shows the print was framed a very longtime ago.

It’s remarkable, how little the architecture has changed in busy Oxford, since the Industrial Revolution! Besides street lights, cars and bicycles, the picture hasn’t changed much.

Published by Wm. De La Motte, Oxford, April 14th 1802.
