Copper engraving refers to the printing method used at the time. It is mounted onto conservation card ready for trimming, mounting and framing (bought already mounted onto conservation card in a "lot" from an auction house). The overall print including borders measures 205 x 130 mm (8.25 x 5inches) approx. There is some age yellowing and bottom border is worn/marked but this can be matted out - please check the larger picture for condition. This print would have been originally bound in the above book at some. This item will be shipped flat in a board backed envelope. The use of the term "an original print" in this case, is a pictorial image made in a manner which allows it to be multiplied, and originating from the date stated. This includes examples of various methods of printmaking including engravings, etchings, woodcuts etc. Inevitably many of these prints would have originally been bound in books.
