Charming original antique engraved print.
A fascinating manner of pictorially representing this subject, unique to this era.
In Good condition: sheet age toned, some old dampstaining or age spotting which is visible in scan, overall the image remains attractive. Any age flaws or defects may hopefully be clearly seen in the scan- please zoom in to study.
The visual presentation is quite unique to this era and unlike a modern conception.
