A delightful Victorian steel engraving. This view appeared in 'Our Own Country,' a book of illustrated topographical studies which was first published c.1880s.

This item is over 120 years old.

Image size: 8 inches x 5.5 inches (205 x 125 mm.) approximately.

'Steel engraving' was the most important method of book and magazine illustration throughout the Victorian age.
Fine artists and engravers such as William Boot and W. H. Overend mastered the discipline of engraving their subject matter onto hard steel printing plates which allowed for finer lines and longer print runs than the earlier copper based plates.
The 'new technology' led to a spate of publications often produced in monthly instalments which brought glimpses of  towns, villages and scenes into the Victorian drawing room. These same items now make superb, unusual decorative reminders of a bygone age!
