What does this mean?

This is a late 19th to early 20th century etching, or etched print that was created by the artist George Emerick Essig (1838 - 1923). Prints are produced in multiples, whereas a drawing, of which this is not, would be a one-of-a-kind. Essig was known for images of views around Philadelphia and the New Jersey coast. This image is purported to be an etched copy by Essig of the painting entitled Evening Hour: The River Road by Scottish painter Sir David Murray (1849-1933). From the one image here, this print appears to be 'signed in plate', meaning the signature is also part of the print and not signed by hand. Sometimes, these prints are signed by hand in the margin, which is covered by the matting; however it is not recommended to remove this from frame/matting. The estimate is based on actual recent past recorded auction sales of comparables. Retail 'asking prices' can be higher and vary.
