Manufacturer Description

TWENTY MILES OF THE LICKING (Kentucky - United States) Issued Boston, 1860. Engraved by W. Wellstood. Lovely mid-19th century engraved topographical print. This particular type of engraved printing process was very laborious, involving long-apprenticed highly trained hand artisans. It also involved challenging hand-operated machinery, inking of plates, sheets of paper individually hung to dry, skill, patience, and other endless tasks and labor. Because of these and various other factors, this printed leaf is an interesting original artifact from long past moment in printing. CONDITION: Please view scan closely as it allows for a close zoom inspection. [note: We grade very conservatively and always seek to disclose any noteworthy flaws. We are doing our best to show & describe this item so you are happy when it arrives]. In age worn condition, sheet age toned, scattered small spotting or staining as clearly seen in scan -- overall still quite appealing visually. Could readily be displayed or collected. In all, remains a scarce and fascinating antique printed image any collector, dealer or institution would be pleased to own. Sheet measures c. 9 3/4" W x 6 1/4" H. Engraved area measures c. 6 5/8" W x 4 5/8" H. [E17662] We encourage you to print this description to keep with the image. ------------------------------
