Fine original antique wood engraving. Printed in the mid 19th century, on quality paper which retains its inherent structural flexibility and soundness.
In Good+ to near VG or better condition, overall very clean, paper is lightly uniformly age toned as typical with some faint scattered staining but the image remains presentable and attractive [note: we grade very conservatively and always seek to disclose any noteworthy flaws]. Text on verso as issued.
The printed area remains visually pleasing, a nice impression of an interesting image.
Any minor defects along the sheet edges and in the margins may be seen in the photo.
Sheet measures c. 21 7/8" W x 15 5/8" H.
Engraved area measures c. 20 3/8" W x 13 5/8" H
