Condition

The full sheet printed to the edges, in good condition, the subject's signature very slightly faded (as is sometimes seen in this edition), a soft crease in lower half of sheet, pale paper discoloration at sheet edges, a small ring of residue at right edge of sheet just touching green pigment, framed.
