This early golden-toned print is on heavyweight paper with a subtle texture and a nearly matte surface. It is in generally excellent condition. The thin black margin is silvered and there are occasional tiny chips in the emulsion along the edge. The textured ivory mount is appropriately age-darkened and faintly soiled, primarily near the edges, and there is a liquid stain at the lower right edge.


The reverse of the mount is darkened and soiled. 'AA/2353' is written in pencil in an unidentified hand.
