Uncommon original antique engraved natural history print.
Printed in the late 18th century, the paper has gently age toned as always, displays some spotting as clearly visible within the scan, but which remains sound, mostly clean & well preserved.
A lovely historic image which is not often seen, and is perfect for display. A picture is worth a thousand words.
The zoomable image is a major part of the item description. Please examine closely, as what you see is what we will send you . [note: we grade very conservatively and always seek to disclose any noteworthy flaws].
In Good to Good+ or better condition; normal uniform minor age toning to sheet as typical, light waviness to paper and small normal minor scattered spotting. Overall the printed image is clean, well preserved and very attractive.
A fascinating antique printed image which any collector, dealer, institution or person of artistic taste would be happy to own and display.
