Marble Quarrying: State [5a], [between 1949 and 1951]

 Item — Oversize 2: Series 2, Folder: 8
Call Number: MSS 7, Series II
Scope and Contents: Unnumbered print. The clearest indication that this state comes after State 5 is found in the landscape between the two necks of the crane, where the two parallel shadows have been reduced to only one shadow; also, in the black triangle to the left of the crane, detail lines appear in this proof that are absent from State 5.

Marble Quarrying: State 6, [between 1949 and 1951]

 Item — Oversize 2: Series 2, Folder: 8
Call Number: MSS 7, Series II

No corrections visible.

Numbered 6 in upper right corner.

Marble Quarrying: State [6a], [between 1949 and 1951]

 Item — Oversize 2: Series 2, Folder: 8
Call Number: MSS 7, Series II
Scope and Contents:

Unnumbered state. Shading on the left neck of the crane, plus details on the metal ring and knob in the left-most portion of the tool assembly, make it appear identical to State 6 (and certainly after State [5a]). Lack of detail in the black triangle to the left of the crane indicates that it falls before State 7. Print quality is overall very bad, spattered with white dots.

Dates: [between 1949 and 1951]
