Authentic antique folio photogravure print on paper, dating to 1901,as published by the Salon of Paris. Printing process is high quality photogravure on high quality antique paper ( probably vellum as there is NO foxing whatsoever and vellum paper has a high iron content, which prevents foxing ) Condition is very good plus and clean for a print of this age with a few small faint ink smudges on lower left right side of blank margins, very slight. The original tissue protector ( tissue protector shows slight wear ) is attached to one edge of print and print is full plate. A nice plate impression is seen around the image. Blank margins are approximately as shown. Print is blank on back ( aside from one small faint light stamp ) and blank margins are full. Print is from an incomplete antique art folio book. Please there is a very small NOT embossed, faint library stamp on back of print, which does NOT detract from value at all, and actually adds provenance to print. This stamps is light, small and harmless with no depreciation whatsoever to print. The library book appears to have never have beenchecked out and appears barely read but was missing a frontis page.
