The plate sizes are approximately 9 ¼” x 15 ½”, and both prints are housed in mid-20th century frames with the outside dimensions 14” x 19”. Published in 1752, the engraved titles under the image appear in French and English. Rare early prints of a bustling city life with well-handled, naturalistic hand-coloring. Item #PR00309.
