Authentic 1842 Color Print by George Baxter

This print is titled "THE MISSIONARY PREMISES AT THE KURUMAN STATION". It was done 1842 by George Baxter, regarded as the inventor of color printing. Two figures in blue coats are in the foreground_ one is probably Moffat, father-in-law to Livingstone. The middle distance has the mission of Kuruman comprised of six villages. Many Baxter prints were signed or had the red embossed stamp. This one does not. Originally the print was 8" x 5". This one has been slightly trimmed and the ends folded to fit in a frame. It measures 7 1/2" x 4 7/8". I have removed it from its frame in order to eliminate the folds. I have verified its authenticity.
