Info. Our use of the term "an original print" meaning: 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, and later photographs and more modern methods of printing etc. Inevitably many of these prints would have originally been bound in book.
