Description: Fine, early impression with some of the guidelines for the text still showing, on laid paper trimmed 10 mm outside the borderline, barely into the text at the sides and below the coat of arms at the bottom; wrinkles, an edge knick and a small hole in the text area. This may be an undescribed state with the letters and the arms but before any publisher address, or the address may have been at the very bottom of the plate and cut off; LeBlanc does not clarify this. The image shows a young herdsman reclining under a tree while playing a flute (left-handedly). Cows, sheep, goats and a dog stand or lie near him.
