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 inevitably would have been originally bound in a book at some time as was this one. Engraving was a historically important method of producing images on paper in artistic printmaking, in mapmaking, and also for commercial reproductions and illustrations for books. Terms often used for printed engravings are copper engraving, copper-plate engraving, wood engraving, steel engraving, and line engraving.
