Hand-colored wood engraving, signed in the plate "C. Crane, 1874." Image measures 6 1/2 x 9 3/8 inches. The plate measures 9 1/4 x 11 5/8 inches.

Very Good.

Not a first edition. David Williams' "America Illustrated" was in print for many years and was also handled by many different publishers. I was unable to identify the illustrator, C. Crane. The image was created in 1874 as signed in the plate, but difficult to identify the precise edition of "America Illustrated" this image was removed from. A pencil notation on the backing mount indicates an 1879 edition. Williams' "America Illustrated" was a popular illustrated book showing many points of interest throughout the United States.
