Unusual about the present copy is the autographed word "Zustandsdruck" at the foot of the lithographed title, indicating that this is a unique "proof" state that was made as a test before the final version. The other copies of this plate that we traced have the autographed name of Irma Stern, like all other plates in the present set.Irma Stern, one of South Africa's most famed artists, was involved in the Berlin Freie Sezession exhibitions when she published her portfolio of Visionen, hence the German title and Berlin impressum of this work.Each plate autographed by Irma Stern in pencil. No. 22 (of 40). Map slightly worn and spotted, minor thumbing on the letterpress title, otherwise contents in very good condition. Irma Stern Trust Collection no. 1708.
