Description:

Hand-colored lithograph. Print image 29.3x33 cm (11½x13") on a sheet 29.5x39 cm (11¾x15¼"), matted. First Edition.

A somewhat fanciful but very busy scene showing the landing at Collado Beach taking place somewhat too close to the fort, which in reality was over two miles away. Also, the boats depicted are inaccurate in that they are not the flat-bottom surfboats that were actually used. Finally, only troops are being landed; no artillery is in sight.
