Le Morse

Issued 1770, Amsterdam by Schneider.

Engraved by C.F. Fritzsch.

Rare Dutch printing of Buffon; 1 of only 200 examples printed.

Fine original scarce antique mammal engraving, printed on quality hand-made paper which retains its inherent structural flexibility and soundness.

In near Very Good or better condition, slight waviness to sheet which is entirely normal for hand-made paper of this era, light original crease down center which in no way detracts [note: we grade very conservatively and always seek to disclose any noteworthy flaws].

The printed area remains pleasing, a nice impression of an interesting and uncommon 18th-century image that would look great framed.

Sheet measures c. 7" W x  10 1/4" H.

Engraved area measures c. 5 3/4" W x  7 1/2" H.
