Interesting set of prints, engraved in a collage style with a variety of subjects including architectural design details, birds, insects, Druid artifacts and ballooning. The most interesting of which is a scene of a hot air balloon being launched across the British Channel. Two men are perched in the gondola, which is a boat-like craft (complete with oars), for the possibility of a ditching. Folding as issued. Light offsetting.
