Condition Report

Executed on cream wove paper. The sheet is hinged at the upper left and upper right corners of its verso. A slight undulation to the sheet. Two semi-circular losses to the left edge of the sheet, both measuring approximately one inch in diameter. These losses have been repaired with a supporting strip of paper which runs the length of the verso of the left edge. Some staining along the entirety of the left edge, likely due to the adhesive used to attach this supporting strip of paper. A few additional minor scattered stains and handling creases. This work is in good condition.
