Condition: a richly inked impression—note retroussage marks around the figure and dog—with full margins and red edging to the sheet (as published) in a near pristine condition with no tears, holes, folds, abrasions or significant stains.
I am selling this superb impression from the Hamerton edition of 1868—interesting to note the nineteenth century desire to add richness to an impression like this by the use of retroussage (i.e., a technique employed when wiping the still wet plate to allow ink to “spill” over the lines)—for the total cost of AU$298 (currently US$200/EUR193.20/GBP167.07 at the time of this listing) including postage and handling to anywhere in the world.
