Description: - Engraving corresponding to Plate 6 of Ethnography, belonging to the Illustrated Popular Encyclopaedia of Sciences and Arts, made by Federico Gillman, and formed according to the Iconographic Encyclopaedia and the Conversations Lexicon of Germany.
- The engraving depicts tools of war, traditional costumes, boats, household goods, etc.
- In the upper margin is the title 'ETHNOGRAPHY', and in the upper right-hand corner is printed 'Lam. 6', which identifies it as engraving number 6 in a series on ethnography.
- In the lower margin are the identifications of the different tribes, instruments, etc., as well as the imprint "Gras y Compañía. Editors. Madrid".
- Intaglio etching on steel, although another technique could also have been used.
- Made in black monochrome tone, very well inked, centred with acceptable margins and with a good stamping.
- It is very important that the engraving has a distinctive mark, mark or contrast in order to be able to identify data such as the engraver, the artist, the place where it was printed and other details.
Conservation and damage:
- General condition Good.
- The engraving is on medium-thick paper of fair quality.
- The paper is somewhat dirty and has hardly any rust stains.
- The engraving has small tears and folds at the edges and tips.
- If a cleaning is applied to it, the result could be very acceptable.

Comments: - Measurements are approximate.
- Ideal engraving as a decorative element.
- The tones of the colours of the photos are not equal to the tones of the real colours.
- The Engraving for sale is the one that corresponds to the photos. The description is not a detailed exposition of it.
- The data provided here are personal opinions not contrasted.
