A few little rips here and there and a fair amount of ‘foxing’ but very little of it affecting the plates themselves, fortunately. Anyway, here is one of the most powerful images – and the most uncanny.

    Excellent pics Richard! There’s something about the old artwork which captures the imagination far more than modern prints. Thanks for sharing.
