Framing Information

A Beautifully Detailed, Original Plan of Sketches of Some Existing Obelisks.  Locations include Rome, Luxor, London, Paris, etc.  HAND-COLORED.  From the American Architect and Building News, May 25, 1881.

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 12.75 by 17 inches.  Has a mat border and foam core backing (not attached to the picture).  The whole plan measures approximately 16 by 20 inches (with mat border).  Finely detailed and beautifully hand-colored.  Shrink wrapped.

Plan is in VG+ condition with light browning along the edges and some light crinkling.
