The print is trimmed considerably into the subject at bottom, thus eliminating the letters, as well as the lower portion of the image area; also trimmed into the subject somewhat at left and top, and into the subject at the right. With creases , some foxing and stains. With numbers inscribed in ink throughout the image, and inscribed ‘S ANTONIVS’ beneath the saint.

Misc. Notes

Partial Scan of Original.

A fine impression of this rare print.
Although traditionally described as the “The Temptation of St. Anthony”, recent scholarship has identified this Saint as Christopher, rather than St. Anthony. "
