LE DEPART POUR LE TRAVAIL

[Delteil 19; Melot 19]
/spanPrivate Collection, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
Entire sheet is affixed to card - apparently with glue. Sheet has (apparently) full margins; pale light staining. Areas of print, mostly in the sky, have a streaky appearance, likely due to the epoxy on verso coming through to front of sheet. There are also some lighter, whitish think 'streaks' visible in image, mostly in top approx. 1/2 of print. There is a foxing spot in the upper right corner and a larger brown spot at upper right at platemark edge. There is some extraneous printer's ink at upper center and outer center right.
