Condition: very good. This poster was linenbacked and during the backing process, its defects were repaired and it now looks nice. From any distance away, you can't see what restoration was done. It may have had only very minor defects, or it may have had more significant defects that were well restored. It is possible that you can see SOME traces of the restoration from a distance, but if so, we clearly note it below. You can tell which of the above is the case for this particular poster by reading our "pre-restoration" description and also by looking at our "super-sized" image of the actual poster (we are the only major auction company we know of that gives accurate detailed pre-restoration information about linenbacked posters to our bidders, but we wish everyone did!).

The poster had separation and tiny paper loss across the foldlines and pinholes, creases, smudges, and tears around the edges of the poster; the person who backed the poster pretty much just left the above defects as is, except that they did paint restoration across the foldlines. You can see signs of the poster defects (mostly in the forehead of the man to the left of the title), but overall the poster displays nicely. Note that the restorer who mounted the poster did not leave any excess linen around the edges of the poster.
