The impressions of each side were made by contemporary print artist Paul Binnie. Print size: 32.4 x 21.4 cm.
Fine overall condition. It is very rare that an original woodblock from this period survives. Especially impressive is the delicate craftmanship of the carver.
Naturally the two impressions are included in the price.
