Charming, almost primitive original antique wood engraved print.
Printed on quality paper which retains its inherent structural flexibility and soundness.
In Good+ [or better] condition: displays uniform age toning as typical, light scattered spotting, faint offsetting, and some foxing, primarily in the blank margins; overall the image remains clean and very attractive
[note: we grade conservatively and always seek to disclose any noteworthy flaws.]
A picture is worth a thousand words. The zoomable scan is a major part of the item description. Please examine closely, as what you see is what we will send you.
Great image entirely worthy of an album or hanging for display. A depiction captured in a manner entirely unique to this era.
The printed area remains visually pleasing, a nice impression of an interesting historic cultural image.
Any minor defects along the sheet edges and in the margins may be seen in the photos.
