Product Description

An extremely rare coloured lithograph showing a ‘View of Quebec’, dating from the middle of the 19th Century, circa 1850.

Dedicated to Lt. General Lord Seaton G. C. B. & G. C. H. Late Governor General & Commander in Chief of the Forces in British North America. Taken from a drawing by captain Benjamin Beaufoy, the print has been lithographed by Thomas Picken and printed by ‘Day & Haghe, lithographers to the Queen.’

The lithograph shows Quebec City from the southern side of the river Lawrence. In the foreground, people of fashion can be seen gathering on the river bank, along from them a pair of native Americans stand near to a tepee and canoe. Countless ships can be seen in the river; an early portrayal of a paddle steam boat in the middle. In the distance the old skyline of Quebec can be seen, with church spires and citadel towers comprising its highest points.

The condition of the print is excellent, having been mounted in an old Hogarth-style frame. An old Christie’s auction house label can be seen on the reverse, as well as a label for Arthur Reader of ‘71 Charing Cross, London, W.C.2.’, a purveyor of ‘Old Engravings, Paintings and Drawings’ – ‘established 1750.’
