Original D.Y. Cameron etching with drypoint.

Outstanding early proof impression in the 1st state of the plate. Presentation proof, signed and inscribed by the artist in pencil “A souvenir of rare spring days in Touraine – 1902. – J.J.W. J.M.C. D.Y. Cameron”.

A truly exceptional example of this fine French subject, prior to the introduction of many horizontal lines across the immediate foreground and before additional drypoint work on the small tree to the right of the image.

On fine laid paper with margins, as prepared by the artist. Generally very fine original condition. Image surface excellent.
