Please note the color and shades in the online catalogue illustration may vary depending on screen settings. Grading this print on a scale of 1 to 10--a 10 being an albumen print with deep brown dark tones and highlights that retain all of their original detail--this print rates a 9 or 10. There is a wide tonal range and exceptional detail, particularly seen in the sand paths and the gardens in the distance. This photograph is in generally excellent condition. There are minor handling creases visible in high raking light and intermittent chips along the edges, none of which detract from the overall fine appearance of this print. The reverse is faintly soiled and appropriately age-darkened along the edges. The photographer's stamp is smudged. '127.6' and 'Du 1 [__]' are written in pencil in an unidentified hand.
