Issued 1700, Amsterdam, Holland
Visually fascinating and rather scarce original antique engraved folio sheet print.
Printed at the start of the 18th century, on hand-made paper which has gently age toned as always, but which remains sound, mostly clean & well preserved.
A lovely artistic image worthy of display which is not often seen.
A picture is worth a thousand words. The zoomable image is a major part of the item description. Please examine closely, as what you see is what we will send you. [note: we grade very conservatively and always seek to disclose any noteworthy flaws ].
In Good+ to near VG or better condition; normal uniform minor age toning to sheet as typical, light soft normal age waviness scattered about the sheet, overall the printed image is clean, well preserved and very attractive. Sheet displays a nice patina which is the result of the hand-made materials used to construct the paper and print it.
A little-known and fascinating antique printed image which any collector, dealer, institution or person of artistic taste would be happy to own and display.
Original fold-lines as issued.
