Numbered definition

A numbered print is a print created to display the size or limit of a print edition; usually a number is written before the size of the edition.  For instance, 15/200 would explain that a print is number 15 out of an edition of 200.  Sometimes with older printing processes, having a print with a lower number signifies the printing of the print is of superior quality than the prints printed after it.  However, with modern printing, this is not the case.
