CONDITION/DIMENSIONS

It is printed on good quality paper which is blank on the reverse. The overall print including borders measures 270 x 200 mm (10.5 x 8 inches) approx. with titled borders. There is some age yellowing which is a feature of items of great age and some scattered, brown spotting ( foxing ). This print inevitably would have been originally bound in a book at some time - please check the larger picture for condition, anything more than minor will be mentioned in the main body of the description. This item will be shipped flat in a board backed envelope.

My use of the term "an original print/illustration" 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, woodcut etc. Many prints would have been originally bound in a book at some time as was this one. Steel engraving was a technique for printing illustrations developed during the 1800's. The steel engraving process allowed for much finer detail in the finished print.
