Visually fascinating and rather scarce original antique engraved print.
Printed at the start of the 19th century, on hand-made paper which has gently age toned as always, has normal wear along the edges, but which remains sound, mostly clean & well preserved.
A lovely travel 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 Average Good 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.
Sheet measures c. 4 3/4" H x 5 7/8" W.
Printed area measures c. 4 1/8" H x 5 1/2" W
any fold-lines are original to the sheet.
