Print of the Day: The Sailor's Uniform, pre-1886

Illustrated by Alfred Concanen
The Victoria & Albert Museum

Illustrated by Alfred Concanen (1825-1886) and published by G. Heybourn, this color portrait depicts a man in a sailor’s uniform. This is what would be called a “proof between letters” wherein the image is examined and corrected (if need be) before the layer of type is added.
