Hottentots Trying a Criminal
(Khoikhoi- Tribal Peoples- Huts- Zebra- Cliffs)
Printed 1831, London.
Uncommon and quaint original antique engraved view print.
Issued on period paper which now shows typical mostly gentle signs of age- perhaps some toning, spotting or foxing (see scan), but which retains its soundness.
A fine old topographical /ethnographic print which is a pleasure to examine in detail.
An appealing and not often seen antique view which could readily be collected on it's own merits, displayed or given as a unique and thoughtful present.
Mostly clean overall, light age dustiness or light surface wear, some light to moderate scattered foxing, overall the image remains clean and very attractive --
