Edition: From edition published in “Jahresmappe der Gesellschaft für vervielfältigende Kunst,” 1903. Presumably removed from original brown paper mount of edition prior to entry into DAC collection. This print was previously described as being outside the Jahresmappe edition, but based on comparison with an impression from the edition on the original mount (Catherine Burns collection), the DAC impression does appear to be from the Jahresmappe edition. It is printed on the same Japanese paper as the editioned piece. The distance from top edge of sheet to image is approximately 28 mm, which would have allowed for removal from the mount by tearing along top edge. Comparison impression was folded under approximately 28–29 mm from image at top, and adhered to mount at underlying folded section (C. Rogan 5/2/2007).
