Notes:
The title, in Latin, announces: "[Death] for me today; tomorrow for you", and the Latin text underneath quotes Matthew's Gospel description of the end of time. This print appears to have come from William Hunter's collection of prints, which included other early mezzotints. Van der Bruggen worked for a time in Paris, where Hunter may have acquired this print when he went to study surgery in 1743.
