We note that none of the drawings are signed by Delacroix and none of the drawings have Delacroix's 'E.D.' stamp. The front cloth cover has some surface spotting, smudges; the back cloth cover is in generally good condition. The remnants of a dark circular mark are visible at the bottom of the red leather edge at lower left (from an old sticker or label?). The drawings are laid down to backing sheets, and each is affixed to the red construction paper pages; none of the drawings are removable from the folio. The drawings range from being executed on paper, blue paper, brown paper, tissue paper and blue paper. One of the pages containing three drawings is comprised of two drawings, with a small drawing affixed to one of the two larger drawings. The drawings are in various 'as found' condition states: some have foxing, some have some losses, some have some minor uneven toning and one has a tear. Some of the drawings are in generally good overall condition with no flaws; most of the drawings have some/one of the condition flaws cited above. The drawing set into the recessed space on the cover of the folio has some indecipherable text at bottom on verso, just barely seen on the front of the sheet. This drawing also has foxing spots.

Condition Report: The unsigned drawing executed on a blue-gray sheet affixed to an illustration board undermat with small amount of glue at upper left and upper right corner on verso. The drawing itself is in fine original condition but the sheet is badly toned, with the outer top, bottom and left edges and a larger section of the right margin (and verso) of sheet retaining their original blue-gray colour, and with the rest of the sheet a paler tan-like colour (light struck). At right edge of sheet the outer approx. 1 1/4 to 1 3/8 inches retain the original blue-gray colour, and a portion of that area is a paler colour (this paler coloured section at right edge was either exposed to the sun or covered the margin). At the top right corner is the number '45' painted in red. The colour variation due to light staining affects only small amounts of the drawing at parts of outer left, top and bottom - not at right. The sheet is unevenly cut and there are a number of tacking holes in sheet, presumably from Sickert's own hand (?). there is an approx. 1/2 tear at top edge at right, well away from the drawn image, and there is a minor handling crease in this area at upper right corner of sheet.
