Condition:

This work is in very good condition. The sheet is hinged verso to the backing board. Extremely close inspection reveals a fine and unobtrusive tear to the lower right corner, as well as a few thinned areas and nicks in intermittent places along the extreme edges, all of which have been stabilised as the sheet has been lined verso. Further inspection reveals a minute tear at the extreme lower edge at centre.
