Idolatres.

(Old Prints, Mallet Prints, India, Funeral Practices, Mortuary Pyre, Sati).

Issued 1719, Frankfurt, for A.M. Mallet. 

Charming 18th century copper engraved print with lovely hand color.

The image has a near folk-art feel, a style unique to this historical era. Utterly unlike anything produced today and of modern aesthetic appeal for this reason.

Mostly clean and well preserved example, the image displays a pleasing age patina.

Sheet measures c. 7 7/8" H x 5 7/8" W.

Printed area measures c. 5 1/2" H x 4" W.
