Original antique engraved print.

Interesting and quite uncommon ethnic image relating to Australia from the very early part of the 19th century.
An actual antique/ vintage printed sheet of paper, not a modern copy or reprint of an old print.
Sheet remains well preserved, keeping in mind it is not modern or new, so minor flaws to paper are sometimes to be expected. Some light age wear or surface spotting/ soiling,couple old light brown streaks, all of which is hopefully visible within the images.
A style and manner of depiction entirely unique to this era.

Printed area measures c. 6 1/4" H x 4 1/4" W.
