A lovely Aquatint plate (print) with original hand-colouring from Daniells' "Voyage Round Great Britain". The Image, within a very light wash-coloured border, measures 165mm x 240 mm, (6.5 " x 9. 5") . There are quite a few tears to the plain broad margin that surrounds the image and a longer older repaired tear to the bottom right corner of the plate. This has been 'repaired' to the rear of the print with masking tape and the tear runs into the very bottom corner of the image just marginally affecting the grey/blue of the sea and the border. Easily fixed and in a mount or a frame this would be unnoticable. The Publishers details beneath the image are partially obscured/rubbed but most of that line including the date is visible. Apart from these minor flaws the image itself is Fine. Daniell's 'Voyage Round Great Britain', is described by Tooley as ''A magnificent series of plates. The most important colour plate (work) on British Topography'' . In early 1813, Daniell conceived of the ambitious plan to travel around the entire coastline of Britain while producing an illustrated work of the voyage. The journey began at Lands End in the summer of 1813, and from Clovelly in North Devon continued across the Bristol Channel to Wales. This is the ILFRACOMBE plate. Images available on Request. ; Oblong 4to. N° de ref. de la librería 110965
