Atmospheric Etching Effect

Can anyone shed light on how these type of classic effect in etching may have been achieved? The background elements appear to be very lightly etched, almost appears as having been painted. This is the work of classic 18th century French master - Jacques Callot.
Could it just have been done with a superfine needle and etched for a much shorter time?
I love the work of these classical master printmakers.
