Design History:
This design was part of the original series of forty-eight designs completed by October 1931 and was also included in later reprintings. The example images were taken with different cameras and under different lighting conditions. However, Version III copies typically do differ somewhat in printing technique and ink color from earlier version copies, and the background bokashi is paler and covers a smaller area.

Species Illustrated:
