The Flight of Elijah
1 Kings 19
Issued c.1700, London by Samuel Roycroft for Richard Blome
Drawn by G. Freman
Engraved by P. Bouche
Fine original antique religious engraving printed in the early 18th century, on quality hand made paper which retains its inherent structural flexibility and soundness.
The engraving is a fine impression of a biblical image. At the top, two cherubs hold a dedication banner aloft above the image.
On the back there is a similar image, The Piety of Jehosaphat
In near VG or better condition, minor light age soiling as typical but still a fine image worthy of ownership and display [note: we grade very conservatively and always seek to disclose any noteworthy flaws].
The printed area remains visually pleasing, a fine impression of an interesting antique image which will look nice when displayed.
A scarce 18th century folio sheet engraving.
Sheet measures c. 16 1/8" H x 10 1/2" W.
Printed area measures c. 13 1/8" H x 8 1/4" W
