Condition
This print and book set was actually purchased from ourselves by the current owner when it was released in 1996 and has been stored since with long term investment in mind. It is in as good a condition that it is probably possible to get for a book and print that are nearly 20 years old.

Cloth Slip
- in virtually as new condition.

Book and dust jacket - these are like new, the book looks as if it has never been read. As it has been stored for its entire life in the slip cover even the edges of the pages are crisp, white and as new, without the usual yellowing that is common with books of this age.

Print - this has never been framed, it has been stored flat and dry since its release in 1996.

Certificate of Authenticity - as new.

Comes with a mint condition copy of the original sales brochure.
