Bartsch notes two states of this print, the second with the inscription “A.C.IN - VIIII”, and the first “avant les lettres A.C.IN.” (thus, with the numeral “VIIII”?). This impression has no inscriptions, but it appears to be abraded at the right edge of the lower margin.
Verso, lower center, stamped in brown ink, the mark of the MFA (Lugt 282).
