condition: good
size / dimensions: 19.5" x 13"
Large vintage print of a drawing of Niagara Falls by German artist Augustus Kollner. Some foxing in outer border and border scuffing in a couple of places, otherwise overall very good condition for this well over a century old print. Drawn from nature by Kollner in 1848.

Lovely vintage lithograph press mounted on black board of the Horseshoe Falls (from the Canadian Side), with Terrapin Tower in the distance at left. Goupil, Vibert & Co. published a set of 54 of Kollner's views of American cities, including eight prints of Niagara. A finely observed view of one of the great natural wonders of the world. An excellent image from Köllner's highly important series Views of American Cities (New York and Paris, 1848-1851). This series of 54 plates was commissioned from Köllner by Goupil, Vibert and Company and was issued both colored and uncolored. This is the uncolored version which is much rarer than the hand colored version.
