(18th Century- View- "By Force From Above"- Giant Magnifying Glass Starting a Fire with the Sun's Rays)
Printed 1740, Leipzig by J. S. Heinsiur
Charming original mid-18th century engraved print.
A delightfully detailed, rather uncommon and interesting old print which could readily be collected on it's own merits, displayed or given as a present.
In Fair to Average or better antiquarian condition, light age toning, dustiness or surface browning, small minor scattered spotting or age soiling as seen, actually still visually appealing in an antiquarian sort of way.
A fascinating and unique antique print that any collector, dealer, institution or person of taste would be happy to own or display.
