1796, matted antique etching with original hand coloring from William, Thomas and Samuel Curtis, Botanical Magazine published in London, 1797 - 1845.
Printed at the base of the drawing: Pub. by W. Curtis, St. Geo. Crefcent Feb. 1, 1796. Printed on the top right: N. 325. The back of the etching page is blank. This is an original page and not a reproduction.
The etching is 9 1/8" by 5 1/8". The plate marks from pressing the page are still visible. The acid free mat with backing board measures 14" x 10" and is ready for framing.
Excellent antique condition. The page has yellowed with age but it does not have any foxing. Of course there is the torn edge on the left side where it was removed from the book. The bottom right corner looks like there may have been a penciled in word but it has faded and is no longer legible. This will be shipped boxed.
