The general condition is correct despite some defects to report:
-The paper at the top of the textblock including the issues from 1906 is fragile, most likely linked to an old dampstain. This has caused the loss of small fragments of paper.
- Tear in the center of the 1906 notebook, which impacted No. 249 and 250.
-The publisher’s textblock protection is slightly faded.
