Printed ca. 1780's, London
Fascinating original old, vintage, antique engraved print.
The visual presentation is entirely unique for this topic/ subject being covered.
An appealing antique image which could readily be collected on its own merits, displayed or given as a present.
In Average or better than Good antiquarian condition. Print has been trimmed close to outside neat lines and laid down onto a paper backing sheet. Still, mostly clean overall, age dustiness or light typical surface wear, and some light to moderate scattered age spotting or foxing as you can see from the scan, small scrpae area in center, overall the image remains attractive --
Please inspect enlargeable photo closely - Any noteworthy flaws to the printed surface area should be noticeable within zoomable picture provided.
[note: We grade very conservatively and always seek to disclose any noteworthy flaws. We are doing our best to show & describe this item so you are happy when it arrives].
Despite any small age flaws the sheet may display, the printed area remains fresh, clean and visually pleasing. The print is well preserved.
Overall a nice impression of a scarce original and interesting antique printed image that any collector, institution or person of good taste would be happy to own.
