Antique Prints

Since 1763 the name 'Russborough' has been synonymous with collecting and dealing in fine art. In the closing decades of the last century the historic town of Port Hope has become home to Lord Russborough's Annex, which specialises in an individual mix of antique maps, paintings and prints.

While Lord Russborough's Annex features a great many works of museum calibre, we also offer a wonderful selection of prints priced at under $100.

Engraved by Edward Rooker [1760].  It would appear that Rooker's attractive view was re-issued, within the present decorative engraved border, as an illustration (No 115) for Hervey's New System of Geography Vol. II p.637 and published by G & T.Wilkie, London, 1785.

Depicted is a British man-o-war, with ships boats in tow, making signal before arriving at anchorage below Quebec city. Buildings of the both the upper and lower town, as well as the citadel may be seen.
 This is a highly decorative and attractive 18th. cent. view for collectors.
