This drawing is slightly discoloured through sun exposure with the top right corner being most affected.

There are clear margins to the work.

There is slight isolated foxing throughout. 

There are no apparent tears or repairs.

The frame has slight chipping and loss and there is wear to the gilt inner slip. 

The frame bears a label top verso worded in ink 'This picture belongs to Rev. William J. Whately', whilst the paper backing (which is loose and damaged) bears a large pasted label detailing in ink 'An Extract from Hantznoir (?) Traveller'.
