This is a very fine impression of one of the most famous plates by James Ensor, after Edgar Poe. It is printed on a very thin Japan paper, most probably used early. In the firs years, Ensor liked to try proofs and impressions on various laid and Japan papers. As he used to, the dedication might be later than the printing time.
