A fine early impression before the addition of the lettering in the lower margin. One of a small number of de-luxe proofs issued by Cadart and Luquet prior to the regular edition published in 1866. Printed on an extremely large sheet of heavy laid paper with the Aqua-fortistes watermark. Pronounced waterstain in upper margin along edge, minor discolouration in margins elsewhere, but generally in fine untouched condition.
