A superb impression of the first state before the signature is added in reverse bottom left. Possibly printed with an extra sheet of glass inserted between the paper and the glass plate to create a lighter and more delicate impression. With the Henri Petier stamp (H.M.P.) in black verso. Several remants of old glue verso and a thin spot along the upper edge.
