9 x 11 pica (1 1/2 x 1 13/16 inch )

Exceptional 19th century cut of an embellished Indian warrior in full headdress and native jewelry. Electrotype copper face mounted on boxwood printer?s block.

Foundry Marking: Marked on two sides by R.S. Menamin. No doubt this cut was used in the late 19th century publication: Printer's Circular. R.S. Menamin was an editor involved with this and other printing related publications. The Printer's Circular was a monthly record of events of interest to Printer's, Publishers, Stationers, Lithographers, Bookbinders, Paper Makers, and Kindred Industries.
