Etching and aquatint on cream Japan paper, 1862. 240x158 mm; 9 3/8x6 1/4 inches, full margins. Second state (of 3), "light impreesion" (according to Harris, "Differences in inking can make this state appear divisible into two states," one light and one dark). Ex-collection Henri M. Petiet (Lugt 5031, lower right verso). A superb impression of this extremely scarce etching.

We have found only 4 other impressions at auction in the past 30 years; the last sold at Swann Auction Galleries, November 6, 2003, sale 1983, lot 374. Guérin 15; Harris 28.
