This sheet contains two impressions. The impression on the recto is without Andreani's publisher's mark and seems to be printed without the second tone block. It is most likely an intermediate or odd printing, according to a note in graphite on the mat of this print. The finished state on verso is printed from three blocks and features Andreani's publisher's mark at lower left.
