Antique 23x33 Hand-Colored Engraving Governors Island NY by Henry Papprill

Hand-colored aquatint says:

NEW YORK TAKEN FROM THE NORTH WEST
ANGLE OF FORT COLUMBUS GOVERNORS ISLAND
from a sketch by
F. CATHERWOOD ESQ.
Engraved by Henry Papprill

23¼" x 33-5/8"

Depicts sailing ships, yachts, and rowing sculls in harbor; cannons at the ready; cannonballs stacked; soldiers standing at attention or lounging on the grass. Amazing detail in the buildings across the harbor. The engraver lived from 1816 to 1903.

Governors Island is a half-mile from the southern tip of Manhattan. From 1776 to 1996, the military installations on the 172-acre island protected the United States. In 1878 the military installation, then known as Fort Columbus, became a major Army administrative center and, in 1939, the headquarters of the United States First Army. The Army left Governors Island in 1966, and the base was eventually
closed in 1996.

The print is mounted securely on heavy illustration board (as found). Some foxing stains in clouds; other foxing stains in artwork area are negligible and not
particularly noticeable; some soil on border. Convo me your email address if you'd like to see more detail photos.

Will be shipped flat with sturdy cardboard or thin plywood.
