    Condition Report*:

    Each is in good condition commensurate with age. Each has fair to moderate surface grime on the border edges; fait to moderate creases/fraying to the extreme corners; most of the appliqu├ęs remain in tact; the ink overlays are in good condition- some sustained minor pigment loss. A few of the lots are half boards taped together with non-archival tape, these are very fragile. Half title page and dedication/copyright pages do not have ink overlays. One piece of artwork is not accompanied by corresponding ink overlay. Not framed.
