1880 FISHING on the Lyn Near Lynmouth Devon ANTIQUE PRINT

Antique print.

An original (from the date given and not a later reprint) 1880 print from steel engraving


On The Lynn

A splendid view of the River Lyn. The artist has misspelt the name, this scene is not far from Lynmouth in Devon. Engraved by J Godfrey after the work by the Artist, S Cooke. The print bears the indent markings on the borders from the engraving printing process and is a feature of prints of this type and time.

The print measures 240 x 165 mm ( 9.5 x 6.5 inches) approx. with very generous borders (not fully shown in the scan) and is in good condition apart from some light foxing (brown spotting), which only really affects the border - as can be seen in the scan, on very good quality and heavy gauge paper.

Originally Drawn for inclusion in a series of illustrated books entitled Picturesque Europe.
