De Vesme/Massar describes two states of this print, the second of which has been cut down 18 mm at the bottom, eliminating the title, address, and privilege. Since this impression is trimmed within the platemark, the state cannot be ascertained from the dimensions of the plate; however, it is a weaker impression than 1981.199, and is therefore certainly a second state.
