DAMSEL of NUMIDIA  /
THE ALCATRAZI or MAD BIRD from BARBOT

(Africa)

Printed London: 1745.

Engraved by G. Child.

Fine original antique engraved print.

Printed on quality paper which retains its inherent structural flexibility and soundness.

In Good+ or better condition, some light minor age wear, faint scattered normal age wrinkling, some small scattered foxing, but overall the image remains clean and very attractive.

[ note: we grade very conservatively and always seek to disclose any noteworthy flaws ].

The printed area remains visually pleasing, a nice impression of an interesting image.

Any minor defects along the sheet edges and in the margins may be seen in the photos.

A charming and well executed engraved image, which appears quaint and delightfully dated to our eye, with a somewhat folk art appeal to it. A print well worthy of framing for display.

Sheet measures c. 7 3/4" W x  10 1/8" H.

Printed area measures c. 5 5/8" W x  8 3/8" H.
