[Title from printed caption below image]. Wood-engraved panorama, 195 x 550 mm (sheet); no engraver’s details; central vertical fold with light foxing, else very good.

This engraved view was removed (by a previous owner) from a copy of the April 4 1868 edition of the Illustrated London News, in which the panorama was one of the illustrations that accompanied a report on the Duke of Edinburgh’s Tasmanian visit. The same original double-page contained another engraving (of identical dimensions), Regatta at Hobart Town, Tasmania, in honour of the visit of H.R.H. the Duke of Edinburgh. Both prints, on the same sheet, are held in the National Library of Australia (Rex Nan Kivell Collection, NK11760/55 and NK11760/56).

Hobart Town, the capital of Tasmania appears to be after a two-part panorama of Hobart from Lime Kiln Hill taken by photographer Samuel Clifford, titled Hobart Town from the North West (National Archives, UK).
