Condition: Some soiling by the bottom of the print, a matte burn mark on the right side from prior mounting, some clear spots, and a repaired area in the sky area. Great colors, good overall condition. Looks better in real than on pictures, and would look great mounted.
Notes: Very nice 1st edition, bearing the red seals on the right margin. Later lifetime edition bears a black seal.
Pictures: Pictures are taken outdoor, in the shade, to reflect true colors, without any enhancements of any kind. The last picture is taken indoor, with a light behind the print, to reveal the exact paper grain, holes if any, or other possible flaws.
