Catalogue Raisonne: Glöckner 2007, 56, Salzmann 356.  In 2007, Glöckner only lists the etching printed in black, does not name an edition size and corrects the date of origin from "before 1910" to "around 1920/22."

Splendid, strong and wonderfully differentiated proof with deeply impressed platemark and wide margin.
