Early impressions were formerly described as a separate state. The etching shows rough plate edges, and the burr of the drypoint prints very strongly in contrast to the pale etched lines, which had yet to absorb the ink. (White and Boon)
Margins: 4-7mm
One of two impressions in the Library (see RvR 246).
