Sketches of Obelisks, 1881, Original Plan
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.
