Drawing is framed and matted. There are tape pieces verso affixed to parts of sheet, so we have not attempted to fully lift the sheet from the undermat. The bottom edge of the sheet appears to be unevenly cut. Sheet has small localized holes/losses, including at lower left and right outer corners, near outer left and part of top edge of sheet. Part of top edge of sheet at right is covered by overmat so it has not been fully examined. The outer right edge of sheet has deckling. There are some diagonal handling creases visible, and some localized crumplage of sheet at right edge. As seen in catalogue photo, there are visible foxing spots and localized areas with discoloration.
