  • Curator's comments

    The state is not recorded by Beraldi or Bouillon; neither mention the printer's address. This state appears to occur after Beraldi 49.IV & V and Bouillon Ae 45.VII & VIII (after the removal of the publication title alongside the top, and before the addition of a publication date), or after Beraldi 49.V and Bouillon Ae 45.VIII.
