This is an amazing antique print. It is incredibly detailed, featuring the marriage of the Dauphin. It is a large sheet, 18 inches by 12 and 1/2 inches, including the margins (about 1 and 3/4 inches all around). The edges of the paper are worn, but the center is in Very Good Condition. I purchased an entire collection of antique prints. I do not speak French, so would appreciate help with a translation. I have left this as found, despite my impulse to mat it! The description on the attached page is as follows:
"657 Charles-Nicholas Cochin Le Fils Decoration du Bal Masque donne dans la nuit du 25 au 26 fevrier 1745 a la occasion du mariage du Dauphin. Dessinee d'apres nature par Cochin le fils Gravee par Cochin la pere en 1746. Preparation a l'eau-forte. Fragment reproduit a la grandeur d' execution."
