Astronomical Clock, Cathedral of St. Peter of Beauvais, France, 1870. Original Plan. Vérité.
A Beautifully Detailed, Original Plan of the Astronomical Clock at the Cathedral of St. Peter of Beauvais in Beauvais, France. Hand Colored. Lucien Auguste Vérité, Architect(s.) From the American Architect, Nov. 18, 1870.
This picture is extremely hard to find. The American Architect had a very small circulation during this time and these original lithographs only appeared in a very limited number of issues that were distributed to a few prominent architects. It measures 8.5 by 11.75 inches. Has a mat border and foam core backing (not attached to the picture). The whole picture measures approximately 12 by 16 inches (with border). Extraordinary detail in this early photographic print. Shrink wrapped.
Plan is in VG+ condition with browning around the edges and light crinkling.
