Crimea. Gallant Affair of the Hecla and Arrogant against Russia. Tallis c1854

by Tallis & Company, John

British ships Hecla and Arrogant attack a Russian barque below the fort of Eckness in the Gulf of Finland in the Baltic. Antique print c1854.

A fine original steel engraving published in London circa 1854 by the London Printing & Publishing Company (previously Tallis & Co.) Tallis engravings with the finely engraved embellishment of the main scene with supporting subjects below and sometimes around the main engraving have always been particularly collectable - particularly when they depict a great naval battle scene.

As all such engravings were published in black and white, the colour has been added at a later date. It certainly highlights the detail of the action!

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