Notes

*Title and impressions outside the edition: Impressions inside and outside the edition bear the variant titles "Farm" and "American Farm." 3/50 (private collection) and 9/50 UMUD are inscribed "American Farm." 33/50 (NYPL) and (34/50) (private collection) are inscribed "Farm." It may be that impressions with lower numbers are titled "American Farm" while ones with higher numbers have just "Farm."

Impression 3/50 titled American Farm
Impression 34/50 titled Farm

An impression outside the edition bears the title "American Farm" (l.l.), and is inscribed: "To George C. Miller [Fiene's printer] with compliments." Another, the SFFAM impression, is titled "Farm," but not numbered.

Paper: At least two impressions (3/50 and 33/50 {NYPL}) are on japan paper.

Commentary: "Two prints, 'Farm' and 'Entrance to the Village', both from 1927, best reveal Fiene's interest in the subtle, yet jarring meeting of two eras" (Zimmer).
