Faust
(B., Holl. 270; H. 260)

Etching with drypoint and engraving, with part of a ‘Strasburg lily’ watermark, a very good impression of the second state (of three), with considerable burr to Faust’s gown, trimmed on or just inside the platemark, an unobtrusive soft crease across the upper right corner, pale staining and minor defects on the reverse where previously hinged, otherwise in good condition.
