Framed engraving titled, ''The South Prospect of the City of New York in America'' after the original by William Burgis (American, 18th century), first published for London Magazine in 1761. Housed in a contemporary gilt wood frame. Framer has located "a heavy watermark on the left end of the paper: FA FABRIANO…There is also an intaglio logo, probably of the modern printer of this piece-probably from the original metal engraving: The letter 'L' is followed by a symbol that looks like a large 'A' with a 'D' inside of it. Over the top of this there appears to be the image of an animal, possibly a rabbit." Provenance: The consignor bought it from a man in 1994, whose family escaped from Dresden when he was a child, left East Germany and lived in eleven cities before settling in Ulm. The man came to the US when he was twenty-one years of age. 7 1/2" H x 21 1/8" W. Framed – 16 1/2" H x 29 3/4" W. Condition: Overall excellent condition. Paper does not fluoresce under UV light.
