Engraving with hand colouring in watercolour on cream wove paper, 1759. 320×385 mm; 12×15 1/4 inches, wide margins.
Very good condition, minor wear and tear around the border (please click on the picture for hi-resolution version). I do not know if this is the 1822 Cradock & Joy reprint or an earlier 18th century one. The paper is 18th century, though.
