Dr. Rush – a contemporary mezzotint portrait.
Extremely uncommon. Oval half length, right profile portrait, within rectangular border, title in elaborate calligraphic-style type. Stauffer suggest a date of 1800, but does not speculate as to the printer, or place of publication. An attractive contemporary image of the eminent Philadelphian physician and founding father.
