The sheet measures 10 X 7 inches and is in good condition aside from age toning, minor foxing spots, small bends along the right edge, a small tear on the bottom edge and very small losses in the tips of the corners.
It is inscribed with plate numbers in the upper corners and the name of the engraver on the lower right corner : "G. Brinkmann gest. Leip." [This is short for Brinkmann gestalt Leipzig - engraved in Leipzig.]
The image shows an octopus, squid, seashells, red coral, etc...
There is nothing printed on the reverse side.
