Additional Details

A later printing of a dramatic Revolutionary War view. We find no other examples with this imprint line, "London: Published by A.C. de Poggi, New Bond St. by Justin Carpenter, N. York, and Horace Billings & Co., Canada." De Poggi's original London printing was in 1794, but Carpenter and Billings co-published the Encyclopedia Americana in 1834.
