Shakespeare’s Birthplace, Stratford-upon-Avon by Mortimer L. Menpes

Shakespeare’s Birthplace, Stratford-upon-Avon   c.1900

  Original etching and drypoint.
Signed in pencil.
S 247 x 473 mm; P & I 212 x 372 mm
Superb early proof impression, with the horse and cart still clearly visible in outline towards the right of the image – these lightly sketched figures were removed in the subsequent state of the plate.

On cream laid paper with full margins and deckle edge. Very good original condition.
