Plate 14 from the series "Picturesque Architecture in Paris, Ghent, Antwerp, Rouen &c Drawn from Nature & on Stone." Signed on the stone.

At the Hotel de Sens, a medieval castle located near the Île de la Cité, a cannonball that was fired during the “Three Glorious Days” of the 1830 Revolution remains embedded in the façade. An inscription on the building (visible to the upper right of the turret’s balcony) records the date of the event, “28 Juillet 1830.” The English artist Shotter Boys recorded it incorrectly in his print as “29 Juillet 1830.”

Pictorial works produced by transferring images by means of a matrix such as a plate, block, or screen, using any of various printing processes. When emphasizing the individual printed image, use "impressions." Avoid the controversial expression "original prints," except in reference to discussions of the expression's use. If prints are neither "reproductive prints" nor "popular prints," use the simple term "prints." With regard to photographs, prefer "photographic prints"; for types of reproductions of technical drawings and documents, see terms found under "reprographic copies."
