the title design and date (1836) on the upper board and a portrait of Tilt with '1836' on the

issued with colored plates "but they are of very great rarity".

The coloring on these plates is skillful, without bleedthru to the reverse, and heightened

with gum arabic, all characteristics of the original issue. The designs on the covers are

uncolored, as called for.
