New Westminster Bridge-General View-Thomas Page, Engineer

(London, England)

Issued 1855 by The Illustrated London News

Fine original antique wood engraving. Printed in the mid-19th century, on quality paper which retains its inherent structural flexibility and soundness.

In near VG or better condition, some creasing down middle and light surface soiling as seen, overall very clean [note: we grade very conservatively and always seek to disclose any noteworthy flaws].

The printed area remains visually pleasing, a nice impression of an interesting image.

Any minor defects along the sheet edges and in the margins may be seen in the photo.

Sheet measures c. 15 7/8" W x 11 5/8" H.

Engraved area measures c. 12 1/4" W x 8 1/2" H.


Guaranteed Authentic!
We do not sell modern reprints. Period.

This sheet of paper is old and as described.


All of our items are original antique pieces and it is important to keep in mind that many of them have been around for 100 years or more. Individual pieces may survive in almost "new" condition or they may have seen many owners and been handled many times over the course of their existence. As a result, each piece has developed a history of it's own.

Short edge splits (often repaired with archival tape), small minor foxing, light normal age discoloration, etc. are all things to expect on items of this type. They rarely distract from the piece and often add to the overall visual character of the item.

Please keep in mind when you receive your item(s) that you are not handling a modern copy, you are holding a piece of printed history, an item that has been around for a very long time and will, with proper care, be around for a long time to come. We try to note any significant flaws in the description, but less noticeable, trivial or common characteristics (such as normal light minor age wrinkling) may not be mentioned.

As we are a US based company all of our measurements are in Inches, if you need the size in Centimeters please multiply the supplied measurement by 2.54.

Payment and Shipping

  • We happily accept PayPal! Payment is appreciated within 5 days of invoicing. Once payment has been received we do our best to make sure all orders are shipped within two business days and often have them shipped within one.

  • All orders are shipped well protected in sturdy tubes or flat white mailers (depending on size) via the U.S. Post Office. Please be aware that once we have shipped your order we no longer have any control over shipping time or delays.

  • We are unable to ship to any address other than what appears on your PayPal Payment, please be sure that this address is correct at the time of checkout.

  • Once your order has been paid for we are unfortunately unable to "Hold it".  We are required to ship within 2 buisness days of receiving payment.

World Wide Flat Rate Shipping-

Special Limited Time Shipping Offer on this item!!

  • US Domestic Shipping- $1 per item, any quantity for First Class mail

  • Shipping to Canada - $3 per item for First Class Mail.

  • All other International Shipping $3 per item for First Class mail. (so shipping 3 prints = $9, 10 prints =$30)

Please note that this cost is signficantly less than our true cost and is a special offer. No matter how many prints you buy, for sure it will cost us more than we are charging due to insurance and weight upgrades as needed. All orders over $150 will go Priority insured.

Important information for our International Buyers

  • You may be charged customs, taxes or other import duties by your country!

  • Import duties, taxes, and customs fees are not included in the item price or shipping cost. These charges are normally collected by the shipping service when the package is delivered or when you pick the item up. They are the buyer's responsibility and are not additional shipping charges. Please understand they have nothing to do with us and we have no control over them.

  • Please check with your country's customs office to determine what these additional costs will be prior to bidding or buying.

  • We won't under-value merchandise or mark the item as a gift on customs forms. Doing so is against US and International law! Any requests to do this will be ignored. All orders are labeled as merchandise and described as Antique Map (or Print, as appropriate for the order)

  • First Class Mail is the least expensive shipping option available and as such is the slowest. In addition to this we have seen longer delays in customs in recent months, especially with this shipping method, and as a result it can take as much as 6-8 weeks to arrive. Please be patient if this is the shipping option you choose, your package will arrive, but it may take time to do so.

  • If you would prefer to upgrade your shipping to the faster Priority or Express mail shipping options we are happy to send you an invoice with the upgraded shipping quote on request.

About Us

We are a small and very busy online business located in Historic Southern New Hampshire in the United States. We have been dealing in Antique Maps, decorative Prints and old Books for more than 25 years and take a great deal of pride in what we do and the quality of service we offer. We ship many hundreds of packages every month all over the world.

We try to offer as much information as possible in our listings. Because we have numerous people cataloguing many hundreds of items a week, sometimes something is overlooked and we are happy to answer questions when we can. Because our inventory is spread out between 3 buildings, it can be difficult or impossible to provide a specific source for any given specific print.

If you receive your order and find we have somehow misrepresented an item or are unhappy for any reason, please email us immediately! We guarantee and stand behind everything we sell for life. There is never any reason to leave us negative feedback since we are friendly, honest and accept returns for 2 weeks after you receive it. Don't like something when it arrives? (hard to believe, but it could happen). Just email us and return it. Simple as that. No hassle, your money back.

Returns are accepted within 14 days but we do request that you contact us before returning any item so that we know that it is coming and can keep an eye out for it. No one has ever returned an item due to authenticity issues. We are experts in old printed sheets of paper of all types and we know what we are doing.

It is important to us that at the end of the transaction we will have earned your 5 Star positive feedback! We want you to be happy and return to us.

We are one of the leading sources of old maps & vintage printed graphic sheets of paper in America and strive to be #1. We also run our own website as well as 2 other eBay ids.

Best regards from all of us here at International Book Sales, Inc & Antiquemapsprints
