Fabulous panoramic view of the city with three major structures identified. A bridge beside which three gentlemen are fishing spans the Ens River. A lovely example of Jacob Houfnagle's engraving style with his signature and the date engraved at the foot of the bridge.
Tiny hole in centerfold just on neatline and an old repair of a tear on the lower centerfold in the blank margin. A bit of surface soil, else fine with a great impression.
