Title with publication information, lower center and right below image. Housed and matted under glass in a giltwood frame. Old label en verso for the Old Print Shop, New York.

Davis of Fairfield, CT. Note: Charles Krum Davis Sr. (1889-1968) was chairman of the Remington Arms Company, and a passionate early collector of Americana. With the help of a few important dealers, primarily Israel Sack, Davis built what has been called one of the most important private collections of early Americana. His home was profiled in the Magazine Antiques, January and March, 1941. Much of Mr. Davis Sr.'s collection ultimately went to Winterthur and other museums. Condition: Overall very good condition.
