Description: A beautiful late 17th century/early 18th century impression of White and Boon's only state. Usticke's second state (e) (of 2), with the fine vertical lines under the dog's chest still visible, with some traces of burr on the rays between Christ and the bearded man and before the wear in the dark shadow under the table. New Hollstein's only state. Ex-collection of Randall Blanchard (1856-1942) of Baltimore Maryland, the print bears his violet ink collection stamp verso (see Lugt 407). He was a director of the Safe Deposit and Trust Company of Baltimore in the 1920s and was a member of the Maryland Tercentenary Memorial Commission from 1935 to 1939. He served as Maryland's secretary of state from 1955 to 1957. At the same time he was secretary of the State War Ballot Commission. In the early 1960s he was treasurer of the Republican State Central Committee of Maryland. A very good, dark and well-inked impression of this scarce etching, with inky plate edges.
