  • Physical description
    The condition of the collection is fair. Many of the papers are loose-leaf, with some being fragile and/or torn. Some have been placed loosely into the sketchbooks or notebooks. One sketchbook is very fragile, its spine having more or less disintergrated, and special care should be taken when handling it.
