Original wood engraving by George Mackley.
Unique trial proof impression, prior to the published edition, titled and inscribed by George Mackley “Trial proof”. A particularly beautiful and darkly inked proof printed with exceptional clarity; prior to the slight break up of the engraved lines at the upper right corner of the image seen in normal edition impressions.
On textured simile Japan paper with full margins. Faint marginal foxing, otherwise very good original condition.
