The margins appear to be full and the condition is quite good apart from a skillful repair in the upper right corner margin away from the image. The paper is a very thin Japanese gampi.

It was awarded first prize in the Annual Print Exhibition from the Philadelphia Art Alliance and was also selected for Fine Prints of the Year in 1933.
