The prints themselves are intact, no damage whatsoever. The colors are vibrant and the prints breath life due to the natural pigments and especially to the various and numerous embossing. The cardboard exterior box was beginning to bend under the pressure of time so the previous owner tried to repair the failing edges with some kind of tape. The silk at the 4 corners of both volumes is worn out. The prints are mounted on accordion binding style (orihon). The cardboard mount has spots of mold and age yellowish color especially on the first/last files, but the prints itself are not damaged. The prints could be unmounted from the cardboard with a very sharp thin cutter.
