A lovely sheet with the four female representations of the continents seated among cherubs and scientific instruments. Neptune and Atlas are shown in the background while Fame displays the title on a banner hung from her trumpet. Very nice coloring with some gold highlights .
Fine impression and coloring. Small hole in lower margin just below neatline, closed on verso with paper. A very tiny hole at extreme upper right corner, short marginal tear, else fine.
