Fascinating original antique engraved print.
Someone long ago has written in pencil the name of some of the plant species shown.
The visual presentation and manner of arrangement is entirely unique for this topic/ subject being covered. A precise clean detailed engraving technique combined with expert printing results in a very appealing antique image well worthy of display.
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 Average or better than Good antiquarian condition, mostly clean overall, light age dustiness or light surface wear, and some light to moderate scattered foxing as you can see from the scan, overall the image is attractive --
