Notes

*Title variations: The WMAA impression, numbered ("8/40") is titled at the bottom of the sheet center, "Under the Brooklyn Bridge." Another impression ("16/40") is titled, just under the image l.l., "Skyline under Brooklyn Bridge." This same title appears on a list of some of his prints made by the artist on June 14, 1958.

**Impressions outside the edition and States: Other than the conventionally numbered impressions of the edition of forty, the following variant numberings have been noted: "I/II 4/14"; "First State 5/14"; and "II/II ed. 40"; Although inconsistent in form, these variants indicate a first state with fourteen impressions printed, and a second state -- which is the edition itself -- of 40 impressions.
