Notes: --- Description of the subject depicted in the print: From the original description: The tomb where rest the ashes of WASHINGTON was constructed some fifteen years ago on a spot which he himself had long before chosen for the purpose. It stands on a hill-side overlooking a woody dell not far from the mansion of Mount Vernon, and is built of brick covered in front with a simple rough-cast coating that is much damaged by the influence of the weather. The pillars on each side the doorway are of freestone; on a panel fixed over the iron door the visitor may read these words: "I am the Resurrection and the Life; He that believeth in me though he were dead, yet shall he live." Our engraving presents a view of the walls enclosing the tomb. These walls are of brick twelve feet high; upon a slab above the iron gate is the simple inscription: "WITHIN THIS ENCLOSURE REST THE REMAINS OF GENERAL GEORGE WASHINGTON. The body of Washington was deposited, here in 1837 in a marble sarcophagus prepared for the purpose. It had previously remained in the vault occupied by the mortal relics of the various members of the Washington family. On removing it, the leaden coffin was found to have sunken in and become somewhat fractured, so as to expose to view the head and breast of its tenant , which seemed but little affected by the influence of time. The forehead was still broad and massive, the eye sockets were spacious and profound, and the chest that of a man of unusual size. The grave-clothes had disappeared. The removal, which was performed by torch-light and without any ceremony, lasted but a short time; the leaden coffin was closed again and finally deposited in the sarcophagus, no more, as we trust, to be disturbed.

TURKEY Trebizond on Black Sea - 1887 Wood Engraving


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.
