Due to my first NEUTRAL Feedback I have received on an engraved print, PLEASE READ----
** These prints ARE cut from a BOOK as STATED, they are genuine PRINTS as the process they used for printing illustrations in books back in the 1800s differ from today and are all ENGRAVED from blocks and printed individually.
** ALL PRINTS have measurements stated, not ONCE BUT TWICE - PLEASE USE YOUR RULER to judge size PRIOR to purchase to save disappointment.
** I cut the best I can, there is always a border left that you can trim the print up to your satisfaction.
** FINALLY, if you are too ignorant to read the listing entirely, to work out what you are bidding on, then PLEASE DO NOT PURCHASE from me to leave bad feedback just because you do not know what you are bidding on which is all descibed to the best of my ability, this is UNFAIR to a seller when you quite clearly don't own glasses, a ruler or scissors...............

Source of Print- The Picturesque Atlas of Australasia, 1887 Fine Binding edited by Hon. Andrew Garran.
Published in Sydney in 1886-88, the enormous, multi-volume 'Picturesque Atlas of Australia' was an attempt with words and pictures to describe the Australia of the time.
Its publication was one of the most significant cultural projects in 19th-century Australia. Writers, artists, academics, and politicians came together to prepare a book of unprecedented grandeur and ambition, and a publishing company was established to publish it. The 1100+ engravings on steel and wood contained in the Picturesque Atlas were among the finest engravings to be found anywhere in the world at this time, and many of the illustrations were specially commissioned works by leading Australian artists of the era, for the publication.
Today engravings from the Picturesque Atlas series, are one of the few sources of images of life and work in Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific Islands in the 19th century and are highly collectable.
