Old China etching: " Close of Attack on Shapoo, - the Suburbs on fire ".
Nice etching, engraved by H. Adlard, after a drawing by Thomas Allom.
The scene depicts a life boat is picking up Chinese men from a sunken ship. We see sail boats, ships and the coast on fire, at the background hills with buildings.
Size: 10 x 8 inches is the complete sheet, 7,5 x 4,9 inches is the actual etching.
Some splits at the right side; broad margins, so not affecting the print.
