1839 Treasury competition essay by Charles Whiting. Very fine "Harwood Envelopes" essay printed in green on wove paper using the congrieve method of interlocking printing plates. The highly ornate engine turned design was produced to illustrate the use of this method as protection against forgery. Folded into envelope as usually seen not detracting from this very attractive and scarce essay.
