Stackhouse - 1752 - New Testament

These engravings are from Thomas Stackhouse's A New History of the Holy Bible .... We have never seen them colored before. The color is almost certainly old if not contemporary (our reasons can be forwarded) and is water-based. Images are fine except where noted. Margins have heavy browning and an oil stain on the top margins (as shown) and some spots that, in all cases, would be hidden if framed. Color is impossible to capture accurately and varies from monitor to monitor (hence liberal return policy).
