4 engraved views (520 x 720 mm., visible engraved area; 600 x 812 mm., mount size), sometime hand-coloured, mounted onto sheets of hardboard, with paper-covered border drawn in ink and wash. We have been unable to determine the exact issue of the prints and the age of the hand-colouring because we have been unable to analyse the paper since the prints are glued directly to the hardboard sheets (faint, insignificant browning to areas of the engravings, such as the skies, due to mounting on hardboard).
