    During the latter nineteenth century many major publishers issued a small number of ‘proof’ impressions before publishing the regular edition. Proof impressions were struck before the title of the work was added along the lower margin and were printed on superior papers. They also contained a remarque, an added etched image, a pile of books in this case. Proof impressions were the only etchings to be hand signed by the etcher. via
