DAMSEL of NUMIDIA /
THE ALCATRAZI or MAD BIRD from BARBOT
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.
We encourage you to print this description to keep with the image.
