This work is in very good condition. The sheet is hinged verso along the top edge to the mount and undulates slightly. All four edges are deckled. Close inspection reveals some paper skinning and light creasing to all four edges. Close inspection reveals some very faint water stains in intermittent places along the lower edge, with an associated very short tear and a tiny spot of paper skinning to the lower right corner. Extremely close inspection reveals three tiny specks of loss towards the lower left corner.
