Small damage? with associated pale coloured retouch in upper left hand corner (see image). Sporadic small-sized foxing spots, mostly evident to sky area. Evident of pencil markings to sheet? ie. vertical line above foliage right hand side approximately 1cm from outer edge and 5cm in length. Further cluster mostly to upper left hand corner above trees, and also central position upper edge (see images). Small amount of thunderflies to parts of mount. No evidence of cockling, otherwise in a broadly good and presentable state of preservation.
