Print: Baxter - CL 199 – One of the important moments of the Crimean War.
Courtney Lewis in The Picture Printer 1924 describes the print:
The Allied Fleets are seen bombarding the Russian stronghold. There is some very minute work, such as the troops on the heights in the distance. The smoke and distant hills are capitally arranged. Sebastopol fell the 8th September, 1855, after a siege of 349 days. In January, 1855, it is announced in an advertisement as "Siege of Sebastopol. The most correct of the bombardments published. 1s. 6d."
It was produced from a plate and eight blocks.
