Nowell-Usticke in his 1967 catalogue Rembrandt’s Etchings: States and Values as “a scarce plate”, and assigned his scarcity rating of “R+” [75 to 125 impressions extant in that year]), printed prior to the appearance of the very fine verticals below the dog’s chest, the acid spots in the lower left corner printing strongly.
