According to Leo Duppen, who is compiling the catalogue raisonné of Heyboer’s prints, the present work was hand-printed by Heyboer at his studio in Den Ilp, Holland. Duppen believes though the edition size is only five, the present work may be the only known impression of this edition. It will be included in the forthcoming catalogue raisonné of the editions of Anton Heyboer.
