Well engraved original antique print.
Printed on quality period thick paper, as issued, which shows typical gentle signs of age, some minor light spotting or foxing, but retains its soundness. A fine old print which is a pleasure to examine in detail.
An appealing antique image which could readily be collected on its own merits, displayed or given as a present.
In Good to Average or better antiquarian condition, mostly clean overall, light age dustiness or light surface wear, and some light to moderate scattered foxing, primarily in the blank margins, overall the image is attractive and clean.
