1870 M. & N. Hanhart - Large colour lithograph of STRASBOURG France - Scarce - Topography
This fine and rare lithograph was used as the title page for the sheet music to the march written by John Pridham (1818-96).
Measuring 36 x 26.5 cm, this is an impressive and rare piece with vibrant colouring in near mint condition.
Offered with the complete lithographed musical notation to "The Strasbourg March". Minor tear to spine.
M. & N. Hanhart was a London lithographic publishing house founded by Michael Hanhart (1788–1865) and Nicholas Hanhart. The firm's heyday is considered to have been between 1839 and 1882. They published a wide range of material including book illustrations and lithographic sheet music covers. Their best work was in the field of large chromolithographs. Hanhart used a complex layering of tint stones, to produce work unique in colouration and tonal values.
