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, photogravures, lithographs etc. Many prints inevitably would have been originally bound in a book at some time as was this one.
