Thanks! A great opportunity to own 2 antique heliogravure prints edited by Hector-Jean-Baptiste d'Espouy. These prints are from the series, "Fragments D'Architecture Antique" printed in Paris in 1905 by Charles Massin. These 2 prints depict Architectural elements from ancient Athens and Rome. A little more information:Important architectural elements and designs from classical ruins, part of a large series of prints by advanced students at the School of Beaux Arts, overseen by d’Espouy, who was their professor. Beaux Arts training included the study of antiquity through meticulous drawings from artifacts and plaster casts. D’Espouy’s collection brought together drawings of the Acropolis, Parthenon, Pompeii, Roman temples, the Pantheon, the Coliseum and other sites, for which he provided captions. These meticulous studies are still of interest to contemporary historians and designers, and have been reissued in a book published by Dover in 1999.Hector-Jean-Baptiste d’Espouy (sometimes written Espouy) was a French painter and architect, as well as a professor of ornamental design at the School of Beaux Arts in Paris from 1895. He exhibited landscapes and views of monuments at the Salon of 1880. In 1884, he won the Grand Prix de Rome, a scholarship for four years of study at Villa Medici, which he followed by several years of travel in Greece and Italy. He also edited other architectural books including a set on Medieval and Renaissance architecture. Size is approx. 12-1/4" x 17-1/2" on very heavy paper.

Large or heavy items many ship Parcel Post, UPS ground or FedEX Ground. We insure most items over $30. If we over estimate shipping by more than a few bucks, we will refund the difference to you. On the other hand if we under-estimate shipping, WE will pick up the difference. ~~Please Read BEFORE Bidding!~~ Please note: reserve the right to cancel bids from ebayers with negative feedback or a low feedback rating.

We have been doing ebay a long time and we believe most ebayers are good & decent people just trying to have fun bidding on items they want, but recently we have gotten a few new ebayers who have no idea what an auction is, and don't play by the honest ebay rules and because of this we have relunctantly had to make up some new rules, so please read our return policy: About our items: Most of our items are vintage or used...and may have signs of wear and age. We describe our items as best we can but we ask that you, the bidder ask all questions BEFORE you bid. Our refund policy: We DO NOT routinely give refunds. Ebay is an AUCTION site..not a retail store and we run only auctions on our ebay page, therefore if you are the high bidder when the auction closes, you have bought the item and as soon as payment is received you are the new owner. Occasionally we have missed something with an item...in those cases we have always and will always, work with the lucky winner if you are nice. We do not put up with disrespectful people and will report any abuses to the ebay security center. About your obligation to us: PLEASE follow through with full payment within 3 days of auction ending. After 3 days, if we have not received payment or contact from you, a non-paying report will be filed with ebay and item will be relisted. About payment & shipping: We take PAYPAL only. We ship on Tuesday & Thursdays only and try to ship within 48 hours of receiving payment. So if an auction ends on a Friday, we may not ship until the following Tuesday. We ship most items with a delivery confirmation and will always have availaable a reciept that your item was shipped. Condition: Please see photos and description.
