    Condition Report*:

    The portfolio box is an original raw linen-covered portfolio with a plastic cover encapsulating brownish-red sand. There appears to be a few inherent printing creases and minor lifting of the veneer; otherwise, these works appear to be in overall very good condition. Each of the prints are mounted and framed under glass.
