Print appears to be affixed to the support at each of the four corners and at the middle of each side. The hinges are probably linen and are not visible from the front. No tears or abrasions. The "glass" is Pelixglas. Due to the size of the work and delicacy of the paper this has not and will not be removed from the frame.
