A Haarlem (Hollande)
Printed on thin laid japon paper, hinged onto a thicker sheet of wove paper at the top. Ref: Villet 121 i/iii. One of few impressions in the first state of three, before all letters. An extremely fine impression, in a scarce state. While published states with letters are quite common for Lalanne, early proofs have become very difficult to find, especially in such fine, unrestored condition as ours. Such a fine impression of one of the masters of early etched urban views in France is quite unique.
