by the Rev. John Louis Petit, M.A., F.S.A.

with illustrations from drawings by the author and P.H. de la Motte

London: George Bell, 186, Fleet Street
— 1854 —

Original engravings and anastatics (relief zinc etchings) nearly 160 years old
Sheet size: approximately 7.125 x 10.5 inches (about 18 x 26.5 cm)
NOTE: the engravings are printed on a thinner, lighter weight paper and the anastatic etchings are printed on a thicker, heavier weight paper.

Due to their age and the type of paper used, there may be some foxing on the plates, especially the thicker paper of the etchings.
