1779 French And Indian Era British Navy Admiral Original Print Barrington Rare For Sale
Offered is a very rare engraving, which appeared in an issue of THE WESTMINSTER MAGAZINE, and published in 1779, of ADMIRAL BARRINGTON. Barrington was a British Admiral during the Seven Years War (French and Indian War), who helped break the Siege of Louisbourg. Along the top of the print, it reads Publishd 1 Sept., 1779 by Fiielding & Walker, Pater Noster Row.
The print, with margin, measures 5-5/8 x 8-3/4, and was found, already removed, with several other prints of the same size, most with information identifying that they were printed by Fielding and Walker (the publisher of the magazine) or from the magazine itself. The image features the Admiral in naval garb, while below is a crude battle map, which appear to be of the Port at Louisbourg. Print is in excellent shape with light crease to lower left corner and guaranteed original.
