In 1777 in London, England, William Augustus Russel created an impressive work about the history of England.
His superbly composed engravings included famous scenes from English history, portraits of royalty and splendid ships.
Here are some of his engravings you to choose from. They are genuine antiques, made in 1777 and are excellent quality.
His preface contained words of wisdom relevant today. "There is a natural desire implanted in every human heart to know its origin, and to trace the vital blood that flows through it to the fountain-head."
