The Manner of Executing Criminals in Guinea
(Beheading the Corpse of a Convicted Criminal, Barbaric, White Elephants, Village Scene)
Issued 1768, London
Engraved by J. Record
Fascinating antique engraved print.
Issued on handmade paper which shows typical small signs of age but is still supple and well preserved.
In Good [or better] condition: Sheet shows signs of age which should be visible within the scan. This includes mostly scattered spotting, soiling and foxing, with some waviness to the sheet; still the engraving overall remains quite attractive and would look great displayed.
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. [note: we grade conservatively and always seek to disclose any noteworthy flaws.]
Great image entirely worthy of an album, gift-giving or hanging for display. A depiction captured in a manner entirely unique to this era.
Sheet measures c. 10 3/4" H x 7 1/2" W.
Printed area measures c. 10 1/8" H x 6 3/4" W
