Fine original antique engraving printed in the mid-19th century, on quality paper which retains its inherent structural flexibility and soundness.
In near VG or better condition, Some very light marginal spotting and toning, but this does not detract from overall attractiveness of the image [note: we grade very conservatively and always seek to disclose any noteworthy flaws].
The printed area remains visually pleasing, a fine impression of an interesting antique image which will look nice when displayed.
