Jacques Gerard Milbert. "Machine à Vapeur sur la Rivière Schuylkill" - Water Works on the Schuylkill River.
From Amérique Septentrionale. Paris, ca. 1835. 9 1/2 x 14 1/2. Lithograph by Arnout. Full hand color. Framed. Very good condition.Besides his Itinéraire Pittoresque, Milbert also produced a number of other series of views of America, including a set of images titled Amérique Septentrionale. This image is from that set and it shows up upper regions of the Mohawk River in New York State. It is typical of Milbert's excellent artistic ability and provides a wonderful image of this important region shortly after the opening of the Erie Canal. Slightly larger and much rarer than the Itinéraire prints, this is a most desirable American print.
