Prints

IFF describes two states of this print, with different inscriptions in the lower margin. This impression lacks the lower margin, so the state cannot be determined. Le Blanc describes two states of the print, the first being “avant le lettre.” It is not clear whether this refers to the lack of an inscription in the lower margin, or to the names of the artists in the image itself. This impression has the names of the artists.
