    Chi-Treasu…

    I was going through some old paperwork that I received with a desk and I found what I believe is an old lithographic print. It is on light brown heavy woven paper and the print looks almost like it was done in charcoal. There is a notation on the back that shows it came from Dr. Elisabeth Ash-Mann in Chicago. Update: I also found a signed photo of Biochemist Dr. Thaddeus Mann of Cambridge, UK. Dr. Mann was a leading specialist in male reproduction research. Dr. Mann was born in Lwow, Poland and I believe that this is an original proof of an artist rendering of Dr. Mann's hometown in an earlier time. Unfortunately, I still have not found out the artist. I have highlighted the signature as best as I could and posted it above. Thanks again for your loves and comments.

      Very interesting what are the measurements of the paper?

      Thanks Sean and Caperkid. I've never come across something like this. The entire sheet measure 7.5" x 10" and the actual print that is either stamped or impressed into the paper is 4" x 5" inches.

      Hi
      Some close up of any written will be helpful.
      Love it.
      Regards

      Thank you Alan2310. Unfortunately, I can't get a picture of the writing - I can barely see it. I've tried the ash trick but it is just too faint and light. I'm still not sure if what I can see is really "Krakow". Thank you for trying to help.
