Montaucon's "Balistes" (1719) Framed Copperplate Engraving of a Crossbow


French copperplate engraving of a crossbow, "Balistes." Professionally framed in museum quality materials and acid-free paper. Brown mat and brown metal frame.

This depiction of an early crossbow was taken from Bernard de Montfaucon's 1719 work on war machines, L'Antiquité expliquée et representée, Vol IV: Qui comprend la guerre, les ponts, les aqueducs, la navigation, les phares & les tours octogones.  

This framed piece measures 19.75 x 14.45 inches and weighs 5 lbs. 4 3/4 oz. 

We have four other framed warfare prints from the same 1719 book by Montfaucon.
