Important Added Info:

What IS linenbacking? Learn More

Overall Condition and Pre-Restoration Defects with Quality of Restoration: good. The poster had small paper loss at the crossfolds, and creases, tears, and small paper loss on parts of several folds. It had paper loss scattered down the entire top half of the left of the poster, mostly in the blank border, but extending into the edges of the image background in a couple of areas, and into the top of the "C" of "CORNEL" at top left. It had some pinholes around the edges. Overall, the poster was in fair condition prior to linenbacking. The poster was pretty well backed, but you can clearly see signs of the above defects and the restoration of the above defects.
