Issued c.1770, Amsterdam by Schneider.
Engraved by C.F. Fritzsch.
Rare Dutch printing of Buffon; 1 of only 200 examples printed.
Fine original scarce antique primate 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 [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.

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