Description
 
Medium: original etching, showing a view of the Pont-Neuf and the Tour de Nesle. Catalogue reference: Lieure 668. This impression on watermarked laid paper is from the 1868 Hamerton edition. This was printed from Jacques Callot's original plate and published in London for P. G. Hamerton's "Etching and Etchers". Hamerton was an accomplished etcher himself and was a perfectionist about the quality of printing. The plate measures 6 3/8 x 13 1/4 inches (162 x 336 mm). Signed in the plate.

Condition: this was published as a folded sheet (with two center folds) and there is some foxing and discoloration (see the second photo). This is one of the better known Jacques Callot etchings.
