Beautiful photogravures after original etchings.
Tis vinnich koud (It's very cold) and Dats niet (No it's not) are considered to be the only true counterparts among Rembrandts etchings.

Originally from L'oeuvre complet de Rembrandt by Eugène Dutuit (2 Vol.)
Thus printed in an edition of only 500 copies.
The printed numbers 173 and 174 refer to the description of the work by Dutuit (Vol II) ; Dutuit presumed the farmers to be beggars.
