DescriptionThe Battle of Waterloo June 18th. 1815.Dedicated with permission to Lieu.t General the Most Noble Henry William Paget, Marquis of Anglesey & Earl of Uxbridge G:C:B: K.M.T. & K.S.G. [By Lieu.t R.P. Read.] Drawn & Etched by W. Heath. Aquatinted by R. Reeve. [London. Publish'd, June 4th 1817. for the Proprietor: by J. & M. Rippin No.21 Theobald's Road.] Coloured aquatint. Sheet 395 x 545mm (15½ x 21½") An intense battle scene, with British infantry closing in on the French cavalry from both sides. A mortar explodes in the foreground and cannon balls streak across the sky. This rare print's paper extends beyond the window mount and, unlike many others that have survived, has suffered no loss of image, dedications etc. It has some foxing however and two vertical light burns (browning). In the flesh these are less intrusive than the photo might suggest but are present all the same - some careful restoration should improve this print overall however. £325 including postage to any UK address.
