Signed in pencil, lower right: “O.H.P.”; inscribed in pencil, center left: “Proof”; inscribed in pencil across lower margin: “Almost ‘dry’ print. If examined under magnifying glass it will be seen that the beginning and sometimes the end of each line is a very sharp point. This is where the graver goes into the copper. On etching the line is one of about equal width”
