DESCRIPTION:  Reference: Hofmaier 191 IIB.b. From the edition of 125 on wove paper (there was also an edition of 75 on Japan). With the blindstamp of Mariees Gesellschaft, Munich. In very good condition, the full sheet, with deckle edges and archival mounting. A fine impression.

Only a few proofs were made of the first state; in the second state Beckmann strengthened some of the letters in the sign at the left but made no changes to the composition. Four proofs were made (this is Hofmaier's IIA; then came the edition, IIB, in two sections, the 75 proofs on Japan, and the 125 on wove.

In this introductory plate to the 10 drypoint set Der Jahrmarkt (The Fair) Beckmann is shown next to the small advertising card (Beckmann's Circus); he's the crier, ringing the bell and announcing the fair to passersby.
