Commodore Anson Regales King George Circumnavigation 1768 antique engraved printBrian DiMambro- Antique & Vintage Maps, Prints, Books & Gold Coins
Commodore Anson Attending King George the Second with an Account of his Voyage Round the World
(Explorer Entertaining the King with Fantastic Stories, Royal Court, King of England, Frontispiece)
Issued 1768, London
Engraved by Grignion
Fascinating antique engraved print.
Issued on handmade paper which shows typical small signs of age, has a strong wrinkle down right side as seen, but is still supple and well preserved.
In Good [or better] condition: Sheet shows signs of age which should be visible within the scan. This includes mostly scattered spotting, soiling and foxing, with some pronounced visible waviness to the sheet, and a noticable crease down the sheet; still the engraving overall remains quite attractive and would look great displayed.
A picture is worth a thousand words. The zoomable scan is a major part of the item description. Please examine closely, as what you see is what we will send you. [note: we grade conservatively and always seek to disclose any noteworthy flaws.]
Great image entirely worthy of an album, gift-giving or hanging for display. A depiction captured in a manner entirely unique to this era.
Sheet measures c. 11" H x 6 7/8" W.
Printed area measures c. 9 1/2" H x 5 3/4" W
