Thanks for your time.
Your aquatint engraving is by Joseph Constantine Stadler (XVIII-XIX), a German who eventually settled in London and created numerous topographical aquatint engravings. Some of his most famous work was when he engraved 18 plates for Thomas Rowlandsonís Sketches from Nature. Your print was also done after a sketch by Thomas Rowlandson and Augustus Pugin. I was not able to find a value on your particular image, but I located similar aquatints from the same series and artists involved, (see below). I would say your print is in the same value range if it is in the similar good condition of the ones listed. I will give you a link to the gallery where these are listed. You will see they are in very good condition with good color and limited toning. Though I cannot tell the full condition of your print from the photos, it appears yours has darkened (toned) as you can see the contrast of color between the main image area exposed to light vs. the protected margin areas. Condition is highly important on antique prints and can affect the value on the secondary market. I hope this information is helpful.
