1908 Edward Curtis photogravure of "Spotted Jack-Rabbit - Apsaroke". Photo printed on fine Japan tissue paper and mounted onto Dutch "Van Gelder" rag paper. This is exactly how the photo was issued by the E. This image does not have a plate number. I can find very little information regarding this print on the internet but it is from a rare portfolio series. I did find reference to a larger version of this image used in an early prospectus portfolio issued by Curtis. I spoke to one Curtis scholar and in his estimation, less than 30 qty. Of this image was printed on tissue. How many to survive to this day is unknown but I doubt there are many.

I can not find another example anywhere. Tissue measures 6" x 8.5" mounted onto 9-1/2" x 12-5/8" Van Gelder sheet. Housed in Acid free presentation matte and ready for a quality frame. Very good condition with mild matte burn along bottom edge.
