Before printing, a strip was added at the top to enlarge the sheet. This piecing was probably necessitated by the fact that most of the sheets of Japanese paper available to Rembrandt were not large enough to accommodate the plate before it was cut down. There exist, however, two impressions printed from the uncut plate on Japanese paper which has not been pieced: an impression of the intermediate state in Vienna and an impression of the second state in London. In this impression the drypoint burr is particularly strong. Evidence of an earlier conception of the architecture may be seen at upper left. (Boston 1969, no. 64)
Margins ca. 9-14 mm, partly strengthened.
