(John the Baptist, Anointing the Savior, River Jordan, Jesus Christ, Christianity, Bible, New Testament)
Issued 1853, Paris
Engraved by Rouargue
Scarce and lovely original oversize antique engraved print.
A beautifully engraved image captured in a manner entirely unique to this era.
Printed on quality heavy paper over 160 years ago.
In Very Good clean condition: sheet displays uniform age toning as typical, and some scattered foxing primarily in the blank margins; overall the image remains clean and very attractive
[note: we grade conservatively and always seek to disclose any noteworthy flaws.]
A picture is worth a thousand words. The zoomable scan is a major part of the item description. Please examine closely, as what you see is what we will send you.
Great image entirely worthy of an album or hanging for display. The printed area remains visually pleasing, a nice impression of an interesting historic cultural image.
Any minor defects along the sheet edges and in the margins may be seen in the photos. These are trivial and hardly worthy of mention or notice.
Sheet measures c. 17 1/2" H x 11 3/8" W.
Printed area measures c. 8 3/8" H x 6 1/8" W
