Uncommon original antique American produced engraved print.
Printed on period hand-made paper as issued which shows typical signs of age, toned and foxed resulting in a nice patina, but still remains sound.
An appealing, uncommon and interesting antique print produced in late 18th century America which could readily be collected on it's own merits, displayed or given as a present.
In Fair to Good or better antiquarian condition, mostly clean overall, creasing in bottom blank margin corners, scattered spotting, foxing or age soiling as clearly seen, overall the image is clean and still entirely attractive --
