    Description

    George Washington: 1817 Calligraphic Engraving. This 24" x 18.5" engraving reproduces a calligraphic work of art accomplished by "Benjamin O. Tyler. Professor of Penmanship, New York, 1817." It was engraved by P. Maverick of Newark, New Jersey. It has cherubs, angels blowing trumpets of fame, eagles, an elegiac poem and Masonic symbols. It is titled: "Eulogium: Sacred to the Memory of the Illustrious George Washington, Columbia's Greatest and Successful Son: honored Be His Name." There are two border tears and one piece of a corner missing. Overall, it's quite nice and something we have not seen before. In an age before typewriters and computers, calligraphy and good penmanship were highly valued skills.
