Good and dark impression with margins all around. Attached by the corners only on 17th century album sheet with grape watermark, similar to Heawood 2095: London 1616. Inscribed i in pen and ink.

Listed as a copy although it shows all the hallmarks of an engraver as refined as Claude Mellan; the quality of this engraving is by no means far off from the master himself.
