    The signature is "Geo". Luckily, instead of being merely an abbreviation for George, in this case it is the pseudonym for Henri Geoffroy.

      Are you saying you have the actual copper plate? That might have some value as a collectible, given that the artist is quite well known.

        It's lovely. Wouldn't the signature and date be in reverse if it was a plate?

            Very relevant question! We will find out when we find a good footprint.
