From the Michel Prieur Collection.

McAlee notes on page 292, note 169 of his catalogue that “Prieur listed several varieties for each main type, based on the engraver’s style.” (For example, Prieur 270). “Only illustrative examples of the type are cited here from Prieur’s catalogue. This catalogue generally distinguishes varieties only if there is an objective difference in type or legend.”
