"Info." in the description is my research, although relevant to the accompanying image or article, is not necessarily in the text.
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 and not a later reproduction. This includes examples of various methods of printmaking including engravings, etchings, woodcut, photogravures, lithographs etc. Many prints would have been originally bound in a book at some time as was this one.
