Fine original vintage offset photo-mechanical line engravedimage, produced in the later part of the 19th century.

Interesting and uncommon printed view of this once very remote region of the Russian Empire, between the Arctic Ocean and the Yellow Sea bordering the Yenesi River.

This particular type of late 19th century photo-mechanical printing process involvedlarge complex machinery, which is now almost entirely dismantled and long gone.Because of this and various other factors,it is now essentially extinct as a method of reproducing popular photographic images such as this one.

An interesting and nicely printed artifact from a long past era.

Printed on quality lightly-coated gloss period paper which may show typical gentle signs of age, perhaps some minor light spotting or foxing, butretains its inherent structural flexibility and soundness.

InVery Good or betterantiquarian condition, quite clean overall; please inspect enlargable photo closely, any noteworthy flawsto the printed surface area should be viewable within picture provided.

Despite any ageflaws, the printed area remains visually pleasing, and the print is well preserved. A nice example.

[note: We grade very conservatively and always seek to disclose any noteworthy flaws. We are doing our best to show & describe this item so you are happy when it arrives].

Condition

All of our items are original antique pieces and it is important to keep in mind that many of them have been around for 100 years or more. Individual pieces may have seen many owners and been handled many times over the course of their existence and as a result each piece has developed a history of it's own. Short edge splits (often repaired with archival tape), foxing, discoloration, etc. are all things to expect on items of this type. They rarely distract from the piece and often add to the overall character of the item. Keep in mind when you receive your item that you are not handling a modern copy, you are holding a piece of history, an item that has been around for a very long time and will, with proper care, be around for a long time to come. We try to note any significant flaws in the description, but less noticeable or common characteristics may not be mentioned.

As we are a US based company all of our measurements are in Inches, if you need the size in Centimeters please multiply the supplied measurement by 2.53.

These charges are normally collected by the shipping service when the package is delivered or when you pick the item up. They are the buyer's responsibility and are not additional shipping charges.

  • Please check with your country's customs office to determine what these additional costs will be prior to offerding or buying.
