Etching, 1921. 170x219 mm; 6 5/8x8 1/2 inches, full margins. Edition of approximately 275. Signed in pencil, lower left. Published by The New Republic, New York. A superb impression.

According to Zigrosser, the total edition of The New Republic portfolio exceeded 500, but the quota for Marin prints was divided between this print and another, Brooklyn Bridge and Lower New York, etching, 1913, making Marin's etchings scarcer than the Hopper (see lot 227), Sloan, Bacon, Miller and Haskell prints in the same portfolio.
