Original Antique Copper Engravings on chain-laid 18th century paper.

Sheet size is approx. 14.25 x 9.5 inches, though some may have been trimmed somewhat.

Note: These prints are over 225 years old, thus there are likely some age-related condtions present on the engravings. Please have a close look at the enlarged photos by clicking on the thumbnails below. We will endeavor to point out the most glaring flaws, but expect at least some signs of age on these beautiful authentic copperplate engravings.
