Beautifully detailed double-page engraving of the Observatory of Strasbourg.

The Observatory of Strasbourg is an astronomical observatory in France. Following the Franco-Prussian War of 1870–71, the city of Strasbourg became part of the German Empire. The University of Strasbourg was refounded in 1872 and a new observatory began construction in 1875. The main instrument was a 50 cm Repsold refractor, which saw first light in 1880. At the time this was the largest instrument in the German Empire. The observatory is currently the home for the Centre de données astronomiques de Strasbourg, a database for the collection and distribution of astronomical information.

The size of the print: 12" x 9,6" (30,5 x 24,5 cm) including its border.
Printed in 1890, Bibliographisches Institut Leipzig Germany, as an illustration for the 4th edition of "Meyers' Konversations Lexikon".

The print is in good condition, the paper shows its age with creamy patina, perfect for framing.

Concerning the age of the paper - cca. 120 years - some spots can be occured on the margin and the reverse side, but these do not effect the quality of the print itself as it can be seen on the scan.

Please note, that by antique prints due to their age some imperfections are to be expected.
