THE CHIEF'S DAUGHTER
Issued 1845, anoonymous imprint.
Engraved by Rawden, Wright & Hatch.
Very interesting mid-19th century engraved print. The engraving is finely nuanced, with a most pleasing range of light to dark.
This particular type of engraved printing process was very laborious, involving long-apprenticed highly trained hand artisans. It also involved challenging hand-operated machinery, inking of plates, sheets of paper individually hung to dry, skill, patience, and other endless tasks and labor. Because of these and various other factors, this printed leaf is an interesting original artifact from long past moment in printing.
