Notes :
Steel stand; This work is in good and sound condition overall; The steel stand shows signs of oxidation and there are abrasions scattered across the surface; The book shows signs of wear and handling to the binding, covers, edges, and corners, and the individual pages are unevenly cut and bound, which is inherent to the artist's working method; The pages are cracking in the seams where they meet the binding, yet all still appear firmly adhered to the binding
