I HAVE TO CHECK, BUT I THINK THIS IS THE OLDEST PRINT I HAVE, IT HAS UNFORTUNATELY A HOLE TO THE BOTTOM RIGHT CORNER, SEE PHOOT. IF YOU CAREFULLY SEARCH FOR A COPY AND COPY THE MISSING BIT AND SUPER-IMPOSE THIS PRINT OVER THAT - YOU WILL HAVE SOMETHING TO THEN FRAME, OR LEAVE AS IT IS! IN THE PHOTOS SHOW THE PRINT AS BEING LIGHER OR BRIGHTER THAN IT IS I THINK IN REALITY.
I BELIEVE THE PAPER IS LAID PAPER; IT HAS AGE DISCOLOURED THROUGHOUT AND HAS SOME MARKS AND SURFACE DIRT, THERE IS SOME FOXING. PLEASE SEE THE PHOTOGRAPHS FOR THE CLOSE-UP IMAGES.
VERSO, YES I KNOW - IT IS ALMOST CRIMINAL, WHAT SOMEONE HAS DONE TO THIS PRINT, I AM REFERRING TO THE PARCEL TAPE APPLIED VERSO, TO ATTACH THE MOUNT! SEE PHOTO.
IT IS BLANK, WITH BROWNING THROUGHOUT, DARKER IN SOME AREAS, WITH SURFACE DIRT AND MARKS AND SOME FOXING. SLIGHT DAMAGE/GRAZING TO PAPER TO CORNER AREAS. SHEET HAS SOME RIPPLING.
WITH COLLECTORS MARK, VERSO - IN INK CIRCLED.
THE MOUNT IS A BIT TATTY, HAS SLIGHT CREASING AND MARKS.
IT SHOULD LOOK OK WHEN FRAMED AND AS THIS IS AN ORIGINAL AND RARE PRINT & YOU HOPEFULLY WILL STILL ENJOY THIS ENGRAVING.
