Notes
Ownership : Gift of Samuel Putnam Avery, 1900.

Content : Holdings checked in departmental copy of Etienne Moreau-Nelaton, Manet graveur et lithographe and Jean C. Harris, Edouard Manet: graphic works a definitive catalogue raisonne.

Content : Researchers have debated over the medium, with some asserting it may possibly be gillotage, a metal relief process.

Content : The print MN90. Le corbeau (ex-libris), catalogued with RLIN NYPG97-F557 , was intended to be included with the 1875 edition of The Raven. MN90 is inscribed by Manet and Mallarme to Arthur O'Shaughnessy; a note by S.P. Avery indicates that he purchased it
