The scene comes from Balzac's story "Une bonne fortune," in Contes bruns (1832).

The text beneath the image reads "Quittons cette femme, dit d'une voix sombre Lord Barndale, que ne pouvait parvener à rendre a sa fille l'usage de ses sens"


"Let's leave this woman, said in a somber voice Lord Barndale, who could not manage to restore his daughter to the use of her senses."

The printer is identified at lower right directly beneath the image.

Pictorial works produced by transferring images by means of a matrix such as a plate, block, or screen, using any of various printing processes. When emphasizing the individual printed image, use "impressions." Avoid the controversial expression "original prints," except in reference to discussions of the expression's use. If prints are neither "reproductive prints" nor "popular prints," use the simple term "prints." With regard to photographs, prefer "photographic prints"; for types of reproductions of technical drawings and documents, see terms found under "reprographic copies."
