Extremely fine crisp and tonal impression. On the characteristic double sheet of soft cream wove paper, as issued. Excellent original unrestored condition; the very faintest time toning of the sheet on the reverse. Sheet (as folded and issued): 11 1/8 x 7 1/2ins. Plate: 7 x 5 ins (178x128mm). An exceptional impression of this important and rare early etching by Corbusier dedicated to his literary agent and long-time friend. The forms in the composition show hislinks to Surrealism.
