Rather nice. I think the captions tell you everything you need to know.

Ackermann's Repository of Arts (properly titled “Repository of Arts, Literature, Commerce, Manufactures, Fashions, and Politics”) was an illustrated British periodical published from 1809 to 1829 by Rudolph Ackermann. As the caption says, the print is from issue no.38, published in February 1812, although may have also been sold as a standalone lithographic print. Ackermann was an Anglo-German inventor, lithographer, publisher and bookseller with premises at 96 Strand in London from 1795 and then at 101 Strand three years later.

Although an accomplished artist in his own right, he used a number of talented artists and printmakers including Thomas Rowlandson, Isaac Cruikshank, John Bluck, Theodore Lane, Henry Singleton, Maria Cosway, F. J. Manskirchten, J. C. Stadler, J. H. Schultz, Henri Merke, Thomas Sutherland, Nicholas Heidelhoff, Augustus Pugin, and G. M. Woodward to produce both individual prints and illustrations for books and magazines.

As far as I can tell that’s an original contemporary lithograph which has subsequently been aquatinted by hand and framed in modern times. The aquatinting could be contemporary or later. Barry's Frame Shop still exists in Scotch Plains, NJ and has been in business "for over 50 years".
