Daniel T Ames print

This is a beautiful print published in 1888 by one of my very favorite artist/calligraphers, Daniel T. Ames. The first time I saw his work was in the Ames Compendium, and I gotta tell you how blown away I was by his work. Every little detail is perfect and his certificates so well designed. Many certificates from that period leave me wanting but his work is always perfectly executed and flawless in terms of spacing and design. It makes me shudder to think that it was all done without a computer!

On the artwork it says the original is 24×30 inches, but the print is 7 x 9.25in. I wonder where the original is at?
