From the 1511 Latin edition of the Apocalypse with the letterpress text of chapter nineteen on the reverse. The paper is typically less smooth and the inking bolder than in the 1498 proof (P.3320-R) ; the blacker inking was probably partly to compensate for the wear in the block that created less well-defined lines and fuzzier forms.
