The top print is entitled: 'Pont Louis XVI.' Engraved by Fenner Sears & Co.
The bottom print is entitled: 'Vue de la Seine, Prise du Pont Louis XVI.' Engraved by Westley and published September, 1, 1830.
These are original antique prints from around 1830, 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.
