Engravings (3) From The 'gentleman's Recreation' (1686) After Richard Blome

Status: This item has been sold
Sold by: Culvertons

This antique has been viewed 6 times in the past month with the most views from France.


These three early hand-coloured engravings titled 'Stalking', 'Shooting Flying', and Stag Takeing Soyle' are housed in 19th Century rosewood frames (Circa 1840) with gilt slips. The contrast between the rich rosewood, gold leaf and the ivory tones of the laid paper really do enhance these period prints. Richard Blome, a Late 17th Century engraver and cartographer published three volumes intended for the edification and education of the country gentleman at the dawn of the age of enlightenment, and these three are from the 'Sporting' volume'.
The armorial crest and copperplate printed underneath the main image indicates which member of the aristocracy gave financial support to the production of these volumes.
They have just come into stock from a private source and as such need minimal polishing to the frames and their paper backing re-placing. However, this will be done before they are dispatched.
The measurement of each frame is slightly different --
32 cm (width) x 45 cm (height)
33 cm x 48 cm
35 cm x 49 cm
An attractive group that really evoke the period they were printed in.
