The wood engraving is a work on paper, framed under glazing- not examined external to the frame. It has full margins and clearly defined printing. The sheet appears in good condition- no obvious signs of rips, creasing or folds and there do not appear to be any surface losses. There are a couple of very faint, sparsly distributed spots of discolouration in the lower margin. The colours are well preserved and the surface appears stable. The frame is in good condition with solid joints
