Note: The paper on which the print is struck is very thick and heavy. Given that this is a trial proof this may not be Velin Daragnes paper - it was not at all uncommon for trial proofs to be made on different papers. There is a printing flaw top left of the image - a small blemish - and some extremely small elements of white showing through where the inking was insufficient (lower left).
