ROWING FOUR OARED BOAT RACE CHAMPIONSHIP OF AMERICAN WATERS NEW YORK VS NEWBURGH AT SING SING

This genuine antique wood-cut engraving is titled "THE GREAT FOUR OARED BOAT RACE FOR TWO THOUSAND DOLLARS AND THE CHAMPIONSHIP OF THE AMERICAN WATERS BETWEEN NEW YORK AND NEWBURGH ON THE HUDSON RIVER AR SING SING", published in "Frank Leslie's" October 1865. This dated engraving from the year of 1865 is 7 x 9 inches in size with wide margins. It is in excellent condition, highly displayable and ready for framing and is guaranteed to be as described.

The lines you may see in some of the older engraving/prints are from the adjoining of woodblocks to make/produce the complete image. In order to speed up the process of wood-cut engravings, several artists carved a section of the block of wood then the blocks were adjoined, stamped in ink then onto this page . Also occasional spots or foxing are usual for these older engravings. They do not detract from the value or splendor of the engraving but only attest to it's authenticity!

This beautiful and decorative antique engraving would make a great addition to any Home, Office or Restaurant decor!
