Very deep, darkly inked printing is seen on both sides. The Timothy Green-engraved plate details are amply displayed, making this example quite striking. Three strong signatures enhance a beautiful type note representing this difficult-to-find issue. The noted faults, "Edge Splits; Hinge Repairs; Minor Mounting Remnants on Back," do not impact the overall eye appeal. Ex: Eric P.
