Nice overall condition. The original paper shows discoloration from UV on the visible are under the mat. It had also been retaped to the mat at some point with more modern tape. The mat shows some light patina from age, no preserver. The early leather case shows some mild edge wear, retains its original spine, and has some light wear to the original early silk pad.
