The Action Near Cape Francois On The 21st October 1757

39 x 24cm (15.25 x 9.5 inches)
Between His Majesty's Ships The Augusta, Dreadnought And Edinburgh. Under the command of Captn Forrest and seven French Men of War, when the latter were defeated and obliged to sheer off in a shattered condition
(Has been skilfully strengthened with archival tape on one place on the rear)

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 impressive 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.
