Fair condition, a rich strong impression with beautiful color. Tear in the right into the image 1/2 inch, skillfully repaired. Foxing and spotting in the left margin, some severe, however it does not affect the image. This impression lacks the lower publication line. All that being said it is a beatiful impression and offers beginning collectors a chance to purchase a great image at a lower price.
