Notes

This reprint has significantly muted quality, possibly re-inked and definitely recolored. The woman's right arm is green, the snake's eye is brown, the jeweler's hair is now orange and several details of the rings in the foreground are de-emphasized or removed. Additionally the hashed shadowing is now blurred to obscurity.
