Antique Prints of the Celts (Kelten)

From Julius Ceasar's "War Commentaries on the Celts", in which he described the somewhat perplexing encounters with the people north of the Alps. When you look at the engravings you kind of know why the Romans, far advanced in culture and techniques of all kinds, were bewildered.

Copper-engraved 1753 by A. van Buysen.

Page size: Ca. 41.5 x 25.5 cm ( 16.3 x 10 ")

Prints have light overall age toning and some light browning on margin edges. Some of the prints were not printed perfectly straight on the page. This does not affect framing them. There is some minimal scattered spotting which is normal on most prints of this age.

Special faults are metnioned.
