Circa 1760. Very early edition. This hand-coloured engraving was trimmed to the edges, 11-1/2 x 17-3/8 inches and mounted to a dark card stock. The English only title was mounted on the reverse on the reverse of the dark mounted card. The trimmed mounted engraving has wear to the corners causing some minor rounding. There is surface dirt and soiling on the engraving more so on the sky area.

Good- condition. Full inscription: Frans. Swain Pinxt.
