Adoration of the Shepherds.
Large print with an interesting use of light and shade
Inscription: "Jacobus Billy formis Romae"
The print is described in the Robert-Dumesnil's supplementary-volume, stating that an impression had been auctioned in 1862. It would appear to be rare, as on page 856 of Michel's monograph on Manglard it states that, since that auction the print " reste untrouvable".
On laid paper with watermark (Fluer-de-lys & lettering)
Condition: Cut to border-line. At bottom edge, an area that was outside the design but within the plate is mostly missing. At top edge some small tears. Paper is brown with stains. Paper stuck on reverse at top & bottom edges. Generally a good dark impression, but areas, e.g at at top-right and on right-edge that maybe weakly-printed or rubbed. Age-related paper colouring (see photos).
