Here are some interesting geological copper etchings. They were published in:

„Traité sur la structure extérieure du globe ou institutions géologiques"

Author: Scipione Breislak (1750-1826)

Publisher: Jean Pierre Giegler Milano (Mailand),1822

We show the available images and list the titles. We do omit the accentuation peculiar to the French language to allow for easy reading the international computer spelling. We ask our French customers and friends for forgiveness!

All images are well printed and sharply defined. Some margins show traces of age and use, such as little repaired tears, a little smudging, possibly a little hole frayed edges and dog-ears. In general the condition is good, however. Any more serious flaws will me individually mentioned.

Page size is: is approximately 23 x 34.5 cm (9 x 13.5").

The images are all approximately 16 x 27 cm (6 .3 x 10.6").

The price for each print is $ 125.00.
