Overall good condition apart from an apparent smoothed over fold at lower left corner (not touching the image) and pale toning, some uneven and with the outer edges being lighter in color than the rest of the sheet. The sheet has tiny discolored spots (not sure what they are - they may or may not be foxing spots). The drawing is on paper laid down to a backing sheet.
