A very good dark impression of this rare engraving. Unfortunately trimmed by a collector. Missing the text above, missing the text below, and trimmed 1 cm in the right border.
Still a nice format engraving 29 cm x 20,6 cm; as a normal 16th century engraving.
Some repaired small tears in the corners and traces of aging.
Printed on thin laid 16th, early 17th century paper.
Otherwise good and very rare engraving.
Delivered in a museum passepartout.
