A BIRD'S EYE VIEW OF THE WEST END OF LONDON
The Graphic, London 1889 - A spectacular, original, panoramic hand-coloured engraving of the West End of London. Large, measuring 44cm x 112cm (minimum dimension - not measured out of the frame). Tastefully framed, mounted and glazed (modern), the outer frame dimensions 69 x 138cm. Issued as a supplement to the Graphic in 1889, with the original folds evident, but not conspicuous. The hand-colouring is very well executed and subtle, though could possibly be later? Minimal wear only, bright and fresh, no foxing. Westminster Abbey is the foreground with Pimlico on the left of the panorama, Downing Street area to the right; St James Park, Trafalgar Square Buckingham Palace, Green Park feature in the middle ground with Chelsea, Kensington and the Albert Hall in the background. A superb item. [Attributes: First Edition]
