The sheet is secured to the board with four tabs of adhesive tape in each corner. There are the remnants of one previous tab of adhesive tape in the centre of the upper edge, and in the lower corners, on the reverse. The left edge is perforated from where the sheet has been removed from a sketch book. Some of the perforations in the upper left have been lost. The sheet is very slightly discoloured along the left and right edges. There is some evidence of light handling marks along the lower edge. There is some light surface dirt in areas. This excepting, the work appears to be in overall very good condition.
