Drama in a Print-

We had a copy of Phillip Barraud's 1782 book "A New Book of Single Cyphers, Comprising Six Hundred Invented and Engraved by Ph. D. Barraud" in our March catalog. We sold the book, but I wanted to share one of the engraved frontispiece plates at the front-

I just love dramatic copper-plate engravings like this.
