    Description

    Cincinnati, engraving by William Wellstood.

    Engraving, measures 9.25″ x 5.75″ including border. Crisp image. Mild foxing, faint toning to outside edges. A nice example of this panoramic view of Cincinnati’s Public Landing during the mid-nineteenth century.

    William Wellstood (1819-1900) was born in Scotland and came to the United States with his family in 1830. He and his older brother John both became engravers. While John worked in the field of banknote engraving, William devoted himself to engraving portraits, landscapes and historical subjects. He created a large body of work and gained a notable reputation in his profession.
