by Bartlett, William

Antique print of Whitehaven Harbour, Lighthouse and Shipping c1840.

Lovely original steel engraving by one of the finest English topographical artists and engravers James Charles Armytage (1802-1897), from a sketch on the spot by W. H. Bartlett, for The Ports, Harbours, Watering-Places and Coast Scenery of Great Britain by William Finden (1787-1852) and Edward Finden (1791-1857), published by George Virtue in London circa 1840-1845 with illustrations of views taken on the spot. Most of the sketches for this publication were by W.H. Bartlett (also from drawings by J.D. Harding, T. Creswick, and others), with fine engravings of scenes from the most famous coastal ports, inland river towns, and spa towns, with many important lighthouses and historic buildings and ruins.

This engraving has later fine hand-colour and the page is in good condition, with approximate measurements of image, 126 x 190mm (5 x 7.5 inches), and page, 202 x 275mm (8 x 10.7/8 inches).
