Note:  This is the seventh print from a suite entitled “La Nouvelle Chute de l’Amerique” (The new fall of America) which took the form of an unbound book. The edition consisted of suites coming from the book which were initiated and those made separately in Suites (which our example is) which were signed by the artist (the latter being more desirable).
