Fine original antique religious engraving printed in the late-17th century, on quality hand made paper which retains its inherent structural flexibility and soundness.
The engraving is a fine impression. A different but similar style historical biblical engraving is on the back!
In near VG or better condition, light age dustiness to sheet as typical, overall pleasing.
[note: we grade very conservatively and always seek to disclose any noteworthy flaws]. The scan allows for close inspection of the printed surface.
The printed area remains visually pleasing, a fine impression of an interesting antique image which will look nice when displayed.
A scarce 17th century folio sheet engraving.
Sheet measures c. 15 5/8" H x 9 5/8" W.
