DESCRIPTION: After some extensive searching on the internet, I’m sure and will guarantee that this original hand colored engraving of the Great Eastern is very rare. I was able to find a couple of examples of this print that were by Currier & Ives, but the engraving in this auction is by James Reynolds, London. Published on September 8, 1856, this 18 ½ inch by 24 inch engraving depicts the Great Eastern along with a detailed cutaway plan. Originally, this ship was made to carry 10,000 passengers, but later was converted to lay the first Atlantic telegraph. It will not take much searching on the internet to read all about this 680 foot long, 5 engine, side paddle steamship. At the bottom is all the information about its principle dimensions, the capacity, and all about her five steam engines. This ship was powered by two side wheels as well as a rear screw. As you look at the close-up photographs, you will see that this print was folded for many years. There is also some toning, some rough edges, and a couple of splits along the seams.
...... There is no reserve on this very rare 1856 Reynolds engraving of the Great Eastern and we guarantee 100% that the high bidder will be more than satisfied with the quality, condition, and age, or we will return all of their money.
...... Please check out our other auctions. We list every day and you never know what you might find listed without any reserve!
