FINE-VERY FINE APPEARANCE. A RARE AND ATTRACTIVE MULTIPLE FROM PLATE 7 WITH PLATE NUMBER AND PART IMPRINT SELVAGE AT RIGHT.
Ex Neinken and Wagshal.
FINE-VERY FINE. THIS IS THE ONLY REPORTED COMPLETE PLATE BLOCK FROM THE LEFT PANE OF PLATE 8. THIS IMPRINT IS ESPECIALLY DESIRABLE AS IT SHOWS THE “R” SLIGHTLY DOUBLED AND THE “&” TRANSFERRED OVER ANOTHER LETTER.
On the left pane of Plate 8, the “r” of “Carpenter” is doubled and the “&” was transferred over the “C” of “Co.” This does not occur on the right pane. On the left pane, the imprint is also only 1.75 mm away from the designs, so the plate block offered here, with wide margin showing the full imprint not affected by the perfs, is a remarkable item. It is also the only recorded intact plate block from the left pane of Plate 8.
A detail of this plate block is illustrated in the Neinken book (p. 397). Ex Neinken and Wagshal
