The Act Of Union Presented To Queen Anne By The Duke Of Queensbury And Dover
39 x 24 cm (15.25 x 9.5 inches)
This antique engraving was created in 1777 in London, England for William Augustus Russel's impressive work about the history of England. His work included famous scenes, portraits of royalty and ships.
It was made by copper plate engraving, has hand painted water colouring and well defined plate marks, is beautifully detailed and is on handmade, chain-linked paper. The engraving is on one side, the other side is blank. The paper has a lovely aged, creamy white patina. The border around the print is a little larger than shown. It is in good condition considering it is over 240 years old.
The Acts of Union of 1706 and 1707 joined the Kingdom of England and the Kingdom of Scotland into a single Kingdom of Great Britain.
