Description: 
Interesting example of an etching used in conjunction with a two-color relief print. It can be seen from the outline around the image and the tone of the ink that it was impressed into the paper separately from the text, forming a mixed medium print. The image is of the title page from La Gerusalemme liberata / di Torquato Tasso.
