Attack Upon French Camp at Famars near Valenciennes. Tallis c1856

by Tallis & Company, John

Antique Print of Military Battle Scene. The British Attack upon the French Camp on the Hills of Famars near Valenciennes. Finely engraved c1856 in the exquisite style of Tallis and Company.

Original steel engraving by J. Rogers from the drawing by M. Brown, with a decorative finely engraved border with flourishes of vines and a small vignette of cavalry and foot soldiers. Embellished in the traditional style of Tallis publishing house. In 1853 John Tallis joined Ephraim Tipton Brain to form the London Printing & Publishing Company which continued to publish works with labour-intensive, exquisite details, which have made the engravings even more collectable.

Great military battles were recorded by artists on the field, and transposed to wonderfully graphic action scenes. The colour, although added at a later date, adds to the appeal and value of these rare engravings.

The definition and colour is much better in the actual engraving. Page size is 18 x 27cm (7 x 10.5 inches).
