Prints

This print and P10610 are so close as to be almost indistinguishable. It is not clear which one is the original, and which one is a deceptive copy. However, the inscription on this print matches the inscription described in De Vesme/Calabi, and P10610 has a frame not described in De Vesme/Calabi, so it is likely that this print is the original.
