References: Pedley #480.

Condition: B+

A crisp impression on a watermarked sheet with some extraneous creasing along the centerfold, some minor spots, and a couple tiny holes only visible when held up to light. There is a short centerfold separation just touching the neatline at bottom that has been closed on verso with archival tape.
