Scattered very pale foxing to all margins and throughout verso. With slightly uneven edge to left side, not distracting, simulates deckled edge. Left margin with two areas of pigment, more visible under black light, almost certainly original to piece. With small splatter of pink/red pigment to lower right margin, not distracting, likely original. No other apparent losses, tears or damage detected.
