Trial of Constance Beverley Illustrating Walter Scott's Poem "Marmion" Another Fine Quality Print from Martin2001 See the condition note below. The photos show the print after and before the fold was smoothed out. The poem tells how Lord Marmion, a favourite of Henry VIII of England, lusts for Clara de Clare, a rich woman. He and his mistress, Constance De Beverley, forge a letter implicating Clara's fiancé, Sir Ralph De Wilton, in treason. Constance, a dishonest nun, hopes that her aid will restore her to favour with Marmion. When De Wilton loses the duel he claims in order to defend his honour against Marmion, he is obliged to go into exile. Clara retires to a convent rather than risk Marmion's attentions. Constance's hopes of a reconciliation with Marmion are dashed when he abandons her; she ends up being walled up alive in the Lindisfarne convent for breaking her vows. She takes her revenge by giving the Abbess who is one of her three judges documents that prove De Wilton's innocence. De Wilton, having returned disguised as a pilgrim, follows Marmion to Edinburgh where he meets the Abbess, who gives him the exonerating documents. When Marmion's host, the Earl of Angus is shown the documents, he arms De Wilton and accepts him as a knight again. De Wilton's plans for revenge are overturned by the Battle of Flodden. Marmion dies on the battlefield, while De Wilton displays heroism, regains his honour, retrieves his lands, and marries Clara. Print Specifics: Type of print: Wood Engraving - Original antique print Year of printing: not indicated in the print - est. 1890s Artist: Rosenthal Publisher: Richard Bong, Hanfstaengl, Berlin. Condition: 2 (1. Excellent - 2. Very good - 3. Good - 4. Fair) The print was originally folded in the middle by the publisher, making this print unsuitable for framing and display. In order to return this print 'to life,' I carefully smoothed out the fold/crease and applied medium heavy, archival tape on the back of the fold to prevent it from reoccurring. Although it is impossible to completely repair the fold/crease, from a normal distance the fold/crease is virtually indiscernible. Light age toning of paper along the original fold. Dimensions: 15 x 21 inches, including blank margins (borders) around the image. Paper weight: 3 (1. Thick - 2. Heavier - 3. Medium heavy - 4. Slightly heavier - 5. Thin) Reverse side: Blank Notes: Green color around the print in the photo is a contrasting background on which the print was photographed. 1 inch = 2,54 cm. Narrative: At the end of the 19th Century, photography was becoming the medium of choice for making prints of the original works of art. Until then, the engraving was the predominant medium used for this purpose. The engravers, challenged by this new competitive medium, were perfecting their skills and creating wood engravings of unparalleled accuracy, quality and beauty. They became works of art in their own right. The print offered here for sale is one of those works of art. Martin2001 Satisfaction Guaranteed Policy!

TURKEY Trebizond on Black Sea - 1887 Wood Engraving

Full star smallFull star smallFull star smallFull star smallFull star small

This old engraving has substantiated and stimulated a recent interest of mine; this physical thing now hangs in front of my reading chair, and I have found the digital copy of the charming old book from which it was cut (VOYAGES AND TRAVELS OR SCENES IN MANY LANDS VOLUME
de Colange, Leo (Ed.)).
Published by E.W. Walker, Boston, MA (1887))
I recommend enjoying some of the 19th century paintings under "Trabzon in art" in commons.wikipedia., which is where I first discovered this one. In some of these it is the artists viewpoint of serious (not ) peacefulness that I especially enjoy, and now this is substantiated, in front of my reading chair.
