Chromolithography was a form of colour printing originating in the early Victorian period (19thC) and becoming very popular in the later 1800's.


The print measures overall 180 x 120 mm (7 x 4.75 ") approx. It is blank on the reverse and is suitable for framing. There may be some occasional light foxing (brown spots) - please check the larger picture for condition. There are some slight binding marks to top edge. This item will be shipped flat in a board backed envelope.

Info. in the description relates to my research only and does not form part of the print.

My use of the term " original print" is a pictorial image made in a manner which allows it to be multiplied, and originating from the date stated; this includes examples of various methods of printmaking including steel, copper and wood engravings, etchings, woodcuts, lithographs etc. Many prints/maps would have been originally bound in a book at some time as was this one.
