Condition: The covers show much wear on all edges and corners. The text pages are fine, aside from minor soiling in the margins. The 'Self-Portrait' has a severe diagonal crease, slightly affecting the following plate. There is some offsetting of ink onto the verso of the previous plate, to varying degrees.The binding is tight and sound, except for the first and final flyleaves, where it is cracked. The pages have nice square corners and are relatively clean aside from some occasional light foxing and there are two addtional plates inserted into the volume; they are not removed from it. The contents are in generally very good condition for this type of tome
