Dismembered by Otto F. Ege in the early 20th century. Leaves used as no. 31 in his Fifty Original Leaves sets; this leaf originating from the 23rd set. Evidence of Ege's fragmentation can be seen in the use of the distinctive matte and tape. A slight discoloration can be seen on the bottom left on the verso side of the leaf.
