only a few proofs of this woodcut were pulled and there was no subsequent edition;
It later formed part of the tryptich Maler, Holzschneider und Drucker which was published in the book Anmerkung über den Farbholzschnitt published by Gesellschaft für Vervielfältigende Kunst in 1902. That version was however a 'Kombinationsdruck' printed from a lithographic copy of the woodcut
