- Publisher: Robert Jennings & William Chaplin, Cheapside, London.
- Publication Magazine: Paris And Its Environs (1928 - 1931)
- Notes: Two antique steel engraving, sold as a pair, are by J. Nash and were published in "Paris & its Environs" ( 1928 - 1931).
The top print is entitled: 'Cour Royale, Hotel des Invalides.' Engraved by W. Taylor and published May, 1830.
The bottom print is entitled: 'Hotel des Invalides, Facade Principale.' Engraved by W. Watkins and published February, 15, 1831.
These are original antique prints one from 1830 and the other from 1831, meaning they are around 185 years old. They bear original hand colour from the time of publication.
Although these prints have a small piece of tape in each of their top corners, this is low-tack and very easily removed or cropped to still allow ample room for mounting or framing.
- Further Information: "Paris and its Environs", was conceived and written by L. T. Ventouillac in around 1928 - 1931.
The publication contained topographical and historical descriptions along with some 200 engravings of key locations and landmarks around Paris.
These designs were completed by the engravers, such as Westley, W. Taylor, W. Watkins and Kernet, using the process of steel line engraving. All engravings were executed under the Superintendence of Mr. C. Heath and published by Robert Jennings & William Chaplin, Cheapside, London.
The artworks from "Paris and its Environs" were made under the direction of A. Pugin, Esq. by various artists. Augustus Charles Pugin was an architect, archaeologist, and architectural artist. He was born in Paris in 1762, but driven from his country either by the horrors of the revolution or by private reasons connected with a duel, he came to London about 1798 and spent much of his life in England. Upon arrival in London he soon found employment as a draughtsman in the office of John Nash, who he would work with on many projects over the years, including "Paris and its Environs", which was to be one of Pugin's last projects before his death in 1832.
