Issued 1795, London
Engraved by J. Taylor
Fascinating antique engraved print.
Issued on period paper which shows signs of age but is still supple and well preserved.
In Fair/ Average [or better] condition: Sheet shows signs of age. This includes mostly scattered spotting, soiling and foxing, some dampstaining as seen; 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. 14 1/2" H x 8 1/2" W.
Printed area measures c. 12 1/4" H x 7 1/2" W
