Ancient Commemorative Medallions. Crepy engraving for Tissot c1755. Plate 1

by Crepy - Tissot

Rare antique print on hand-laid paper, from an 18th century series of engravings of medallions. This one is the first in the series, and with "Les estampes des Medaillons doivent etre placees de suite apres la page 32, indicates that "The engravings of the Medallions should be placed after page 32" of the book for which they were engraved.


Decorative original copperplate engraving by Crepy of historic medallions with head and obverse, published by Tissot circa 1775. Later soft, faded hand-colouring to the coins certainly adds to their appeal.

Size to intaglio impression is 195 x 160mm (7.75 x 6.25 inches). Page size is 305 x 210mm (12 x 8.25 inches).
