Een Grieckish Edelman.

(Ethnic, Cultural Costume, Greece, Nobility).

Issued c.1570, after Nicolas de Nicolay, likely Holland. Likely printed for a rare Dutch version of Les Navigations et Voyages.

Rare antique 16th century woodcut (copper engraved?) ethnic type print. Print depicts a 16th century Greek nobleman in sumptuous fur robes.

Print mounted long ago to larger backing sheet, light scattered browning from old glue, still with a fine patina and visual appeal.

Interesting early printed image of this now vanished type of individual and dress.

Print sheet measures c. 7 1/4"H x 5"W.

Printed area measures c. 6 1/4"H x 4 3/8"W.
