This exceptionally detailed early print is in generally excellent condition. It is appropriately age-darkened overall. In the margins there are some tiny glossy deposits and some paper remnants, possibly from a previous mat.
On the reverse, there is a tacky adhesive remnant. 'AA/2258' is written in pencil in an unidentified hand.
