Old Brick Church (built 1632), Isle of Wight County, VA, 1884, Photogravure.
A Beautifully Detailed Photogravure of the Old Brick Church built in 1632 in the Isle of Wight County, Virginia. HAND-COLORED. Unknown, Architect. From the American Architect and Building News, April 19, 1884.
This picture is extremely hard to find, as the American Architect and Building News not only had a very small circulation during that time, but very few were actually preserved or colored as this has been. It measures 12 by 8.75 inches. Has a mat border and foam core backing (not attached to the picture). The whole plan measures 16 by 12 inches (with mat border). Finely detailed and beautifully hand-colored. Shrink wrapped.
Plan is in VG+ condition with very light browning and some minor crinkling.
This is a highly unusual, scarce item. See our other auctions for more hand-colored original plans.
