(Reference SB 229 ; Fern 158 ) The block was made circa 1905 and is made of two pieces filleted together which has cracked at the joint . There was an edition of 20 copies, otherwise it was unpublished. The design was probably intended to be used for Histoire de la Reine du Matin published by Eragny Press in 1909. However no circular wood blocks were used in this publication.
