Sydney Lane Cove River Antique Print, Australia c1886

by Fullwood, A.H.

Antique Print of Lane Cove River, Sydney, Australia.

Original wood engraving by A. Hayman after a sketch by Albert Henry Fullwood (1863-1930) for Picturesque Atlas of Australasia published in Sydney between 1886 and 1888 to commemorate 100 years since British settlement at Port Jackson in Sydney, and subsequent development of the region. The engravings for this publication were among the finest anywhere in the world at the time.

These interesting engravings have always been collectable, with many hand-coloured since publication. Full page size was usually 45 x 34cm (17.5 x 13.5 inches). Some of the larger engravings were inserted without printing on reverse, but most of the engravings were printed within a page of text - as with this one. This original engraving is mounted between 'antique-white' conservation matt-board, and covered in cellophane for presentation and protection until framed. Size of engraving is 5.5 x 7 inches or 14 x 18cm. External mounted size is 10 x 12 inches or 25 x 30cm
