Description: Fine, early, atmospheric impression of a plate of which there are innumerable bad impressions, on textured wove paper with good margins; slight browning at the sheet edges. No trial proofs are known today,athough Parrish mentions 8 proofs sold, but the work underwent many emendations to satisfy the editor of the American Art Review, Sylvester Koehler. After the first publication, the plate was reprinted many times, frequently on poor paper and handled so badly that the edges of the image were degraded or missing. The plate signature, which Schneider mentions as "faint", is strong and clear here.
