This work is in good condition overall, taking its age into account. The sheet has faintly yellowed throughout. The sheet has been mounted to a foam backing in each of the corners.

Four pinpoint spots of foxing are present along the extreme right edge of the sheet, three towards the upper end and one towards the lower end. A faint horizontal crease measuring 1/2 inch in length is present at the extreme center left edge of the sheet.
