An Original Vintage Theatrical Linenbacked One-Sheet Movie Poster (measures 27" x 41") (Learn More)

Around the World With Burton Holmes, the 1920s MGM silent adventure travelogue documentary short series (about the adventures of Burton Holmes, who was a famous world traveler at that time). It is estimated that Burton Holmes gave over 8,000 illustrated travel lectures, using slides and motion pictures, from the 1890s to the 1950s. He traveled to every continent and to every country he could, circling the globe six times. Astoundingly, almost all his journeys took place before the invention of the airplane! When Paramount and MGM brought the Burton Holmes series to the big screen in the 1920s, it showed the adventures of the world traveler to audiences across the nation.

If you know who did the art (if any), please let us know.

Condition: very good. This poster was linenbacked, and it had defects which were repaired during the linenbacking process (which we describe below, as well as the quality of the restoration, if I thought there was something about the restoration worth commenting on!). You should also look 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 blank borders of the poster had been trimmed off but the image area of the poster was in quite nice condition with only minor wear on the foldlines. The person who linenbacked the poster re-created the borders, and did so extremely expertly, and I think few people would realize it unless it was specifically shown to them! The poster looks quite nice!
