This is a first state before the number bottom right..
From the series::
Capricci di varie figure di Iacopo Callot - The Nancy set - 1621
A series very sought after. It marks a date in the art of engraving, the first series done by Callot, using the hard varnish of the luthiers of Florence, instead of the tender varnish hitherto employed by the engravers. It is a marvel of composition and drawing, a prodigy of engraving, of an incomparable finesse and charm.
A very good early impressionwith full plate borders and small margins pasted on an old laid paper collection sheet..
Jacques Callot ( 1592 - 1635)
Etcher and draughtsman, born Nancy. 1608-1611 in Rome; 1612-1621 in Florence, working for the Medici; in 1621 returned to Nancy, where he settled and married. Died suddenly in 1635. Enormously popular and much copied. From c. 1620 most of his plates were published by his friend Israel Henriet.
