Printed in the late 19th century on paper which has gently age toned as always, but which remains sound, clean, & well preserved.

A lovely image worthy of display which is not often seen.
In Good to Good+ or better condition, normal uniform light age toning to sheet as typical, some edge wear, as well as a some trivial light age staining primarily in the margins, overall the image is clean, well preserved and very attractive
A little known and vivid printed image which any collector, dealer, institution or person of artistic taste would be happy to own.
