Dog Greyhound Coursing, Spectacular & Huge Double 1870s Antique Print & Article:
You are offerding on a huge original antique print from an 1870s illustrated journal.
THe is simply the best greyhound print I have sold, for both its artistry and its size! It depicts the Waterloo Cup at Altcar. Two beautiful greyhound dogs are coursing a rabbit. A huntsman, spectators and dog handlers watch. On the backside of the print is a short article about the event.
It is very large (double folio size), measuring approximately 21.5 x 15.75 inches (54.5 x 40 cm). The picture fills most of the page, with a caption below. There is unrelated text/photos on the back of this print.
The print has a fold in the middle, where it was folded into the magazine long ago. Note that the fold line is clean and undamaged, because it was "tipped" into the binding. This was a luxury binding technique of that era, because the double page prints were free of binding holes down the center.
The page is in excellent condition for its age. See scan for an accurate view of the condition.
This is GENUINE antique/vintage item. It is not a modern reproduction.
