This 18th Century copper engraving by John Hall in 1775 depicts William Penn entering into peace treaty in 1683 with Tamanend, a chief of the Lenape ("Delaware Indians") Turtle Clan, under the shade of an elm tree near the village of Shackamaxon (now Kensington) in Pennsylvania. The original painting by Benjamin West was completed in 1772.
This rare print is in really very good condition and uncoloured. The engraving marks are crisp and sharp and the detail is excellent, even to the ships in the harbour beyond.
The plate mark is visible under the writing, but the page has been slightly trimmed on the sides and top.
