Tasmania. "Hobarttown. Vandiemensland." Antique engraving c1836.

by Meyer, Hermann

Original fine steel engraving published by the Bibliographic Institute of Hildburghausen in Germany circa 1836 for Hermann Meyer's Universum. As is the case with many prized early engravings, this one has been hand-tinted with watercolour, which gives better clarity to the view, but this is still not recognisable as Hobart in Tasmania.

Page measures 185 x 265mm (7.25 x 11.5 inches). Engraving measures 105 x 155mm (approximately 4 x 6 inches).
