unmistakably, and instantaneously lithographed after own sketch, and thus “standing out highly advantageously from the leaves of much smaller size engraved after him by other artists … Lasinsky’s ‘sensibility, keenest power of observation, realistic study of nature, and talent for large wide landscapes’ have been praised” (Schulte 1969). – Paper abrasions already originating from the first printing pass (drawing) and partly printed over by the tone plate at the lower image borderline including partial loss of the German title and on the left in the upper margin.
