Issued 1771, Paris
Engraved by J.P. le Bas
Fine original antique engraved print.
Printed on period paper as issued which retains its inherent structural flexibility and soundness.
In Good [or better] condition: displays normal age toning as typical, small age spotting and light to moderate scattered foxing in the blank margins; overall the image remains clean and very attractive--- please inspect zoomable visual scan closely- note the zoom feature which allows for very close inspection.
[ note: we grade conservatively and always seek to disclose any noteworthy flaws. ].
Pleasing old printed paper image entirely worthy of any collection and / or display. A depiction captured in a manner entirely unique to this particular historical era. Not only is the artistic style interesting, but the historical method used for printing it essentially no longer exists. This renders the sheet of paper utterly historically unique, as you will observe when you see it in person.
Any minor defects along the sheet edges and in the margins may be seen in the photos.
Sheet measures c. 10 1/2" W x 8 3/8" H.
Engraved area measures c. 8 3/4" W x 6" H.
We guarantee this printed sheet of paper to be old, printed many years ago, not recently. We stand behind the authenticity of everything we sell- forever.
