1849 The Voyage of Life Youth Thomas Etched by James Smillie.  
I've recently purchased an original print entitled Voyage of Life.  It appears a bit yellowed from age but overall seems to be in Good condition.  Can you tell me what it may be worth?

Thank you so much.


Voyage of Life was etched by James David Smillie (1833-1909) after a painting by Thomas Cole.  Only one copy shows up in auction records from a sale in the New York in 1992 where a set of four prints sold for US$600.00.  I suggest yours, taking into account condition etc., is probably valued at US$100.00.

Cheers, Brent
