The Column of Theodosius Constantinople (Istanbul), Turkey Another Fine Quality Print from Martin2001 Print Specifics: Type of print: Steel engraving - Original antique print Year of printing: not indicated in the print - est. 1840 Original artist: W.H. Bartlett Engraver: Cousen Publisher: London, Geo. Virtue, 26 Ivy Lane Condition: 1 (1. Excellent - 2. Very good - 3. Good - 4. Fair) Overall uniform very light age toning of paper. Dimensions: 8 x 10.5 inches, including blank margins (borders) around the image. Paper weight: 2 (1. Thick - 2. Heavier - 3. Medium heavy - 4. Slightly heavier - 5.

An excerpt from the description that accompanied the print: Byzantium, enriched by the first Constantine, and made the key-stone of a new Empire, and the capital of a second Rome—Byzantium, where a hundred of his august race feasted and governed in their turn, and which was ultimately lost to Christendom by the last and bravest of the line—is now a mere Moslem palace, where the echoes of the war-trumpet, and the neighing of the war-steed, have been replaced by the twanging of the lute, and the voices of women; even its ancient name is never heard, and its broad sun-lighted honours have been exchanged for silence and mystery. It is asserted by historians that the capital of Byzantium was formerly enriched with columns and statues, and that monuments, now no longer in existence, were profusely collected within its walls; be that as it may, the only remnant of classic antiquity now remaining is a stately column of marble, formed of huge blocks piled upon each other to the height of ninety feet, and standing upon a raised square platform, or terrace, planted with trees, in an outer court of the palace; and known as the Column of Theodosius; though it is evident, in comparing this pillar with the description of antiquaries, that it cannot be the original monument called by that nam nor, it is presumed, can its present position he that which it originally occupied in the city. A venerable cypress, many feet higher than the column, screens on the seaward side, but the statue which once surmounted the capital is gone and one deep rent, almost separating the shaft throughout its whole thickness and evidently produced by the shock of one of those earthquakes to which Constantinople was formerly so subject, attests its ancient origin; while the graceful proportions, and the elaborately-defined acanthus of its capital, render it one of the most interesting monuments now existing in the capital.

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.
