Condition Report

These prints, each on double-weight paper with a light surface sheen, are in generally excellent condition. When examined very closely in raking light, some of the prints exhibit faint silvering in the darkest areas, mostly close to the edges. Some of the margin edges and corners are slightly rippled and/or bumped with occasional small creases.

New York 78, 1976 - There is a small tear at the upper right margin edge. 


There is some minor soiling on some of the wrappers. The portfolio case is in generally excellent condition.
