"Einbalsamierung einer Leiche"
Embalming of a human corpse.
Zincograph after a copper etching published 1732
by Johann Jakob Scheuchzer (1672-1733).
This zincograph published in a German publication.
Rather European ambient for a embalming scene. With an Egyptian sarcophagus serving as visual aid. Two types of mummies flanking the scene.
Light general age toning. Otherwise very good condition. Ample margins.
