Battle of Torres Vedras, Portugal. Tallis battle scene c1856

by Tallis & Company, John

Military Battle scene at Torres Vedras, published circa 1856 by Tallis, London Printing & Publishing Company.

Original steel engraving by D. Pound after G.W. Terry, embellished by a finely engraved border of flags and battle accoutrement, in the traditional style of the famous Tallis publishing house. John Tallis joined Ephraim Tipton Brain to form the London Printing & Publishing Company which continued to publish works with this labour-intensive, exquisite detail.

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 page size is 18 x 27cm (7 x 10.5 inches).
