        Numbered on plate: '1', upper right, and '284 C', lower right; lettered with title: 'Crit [sic] de Paris', alongside bottom, and with publication line, upper left and upside down: 'Adr. Schoenebeek Exc.' (very faint)
  • Curator's comments

    The address of Schoonebeek has been erased, and the plate re-used. The costume of the figures suggests a date towards the middle of the XVIIIc. The botched lettering implies that the new publisher was also Dutch.
