American artist Eli S. Glover has two pieces of work in this collection, this one and the in-worse-condition-but-just-as-splendid London in 1872 print. I don’t know if this Victoria one was origianlly in colour as well, but it kind of doesn’t need it - I’ve never before seen anything like the standing shadowed type spelling “Victoria Harbour,” “James Bay” and “Straits of Fuca.” They’re the typographic cherry on top of a wonderfully executed sundae. I erased a considerable amount of folding and yellowing on the Library of Congress original. 

A reproduction available at 18x12” or 36x24” on Epson Enhanced Matte 192 gsm paper printed with Epson UltraChrome XD2 archival ink. Sold in an open edition, unframed. Based on this original public domain image held by the Library of Congress.
