Uncommon original antique vintage engraved print.
Paper shows signs of age- some normal minor waviness, some spotting, dampstaining or foxing. Despite the obvious signs of age, still a fine old engraved print which is a pleasure to examine in detail.
An appealing and not often seen antique view which could readily be collected on it's own merits, displayed or given as a present.
In Good+ or better antiquarian condition, light browning, mostly clean overall, light age dustiness or light surface wear, overall the image is clean and very attractive --
