Fine and uncommon antique Frontis print, with beautiful original hand color. Numerous figures surround the central allegrocial woman, including what appears to be a Native American as well as a Chinese man bowing down to her in tribute.

A picture is worth a thousand words. The photos are a major part of the item description. Please examine them closely, as what you see is what we will send you. [note: we grade conservatively and always seek to disclose any noteworthy flaws.].

Blank margins are spotted, some dampstaining, some light discoloration at left side- print at some point got a bit damp but this is long past and now the overall visual appeal is excellent.

Print remains overall sound and appealing visually. Old prints often display small minor repairs on the back, could have uneven blank margins, might have extraneous fold-lines or other small minor age flaws which do not detract from the visual appeal or value. Condition is carefully considered in arriving at our price.

Great allegorical print entirely worthy of hanging for display.

A depiction captured in a manner entirely unique to this era.
