Important Added Info: Note that this Czech poster measures 37" x 49 1/2" and is linenbacked.

Condition: very good to fine. The poster is linenbacked; it appears that the poster had a few areas of paper loss in the blank borders; all were solely in the blank borders except for the following; a piece in the top left corner where the loss extended into the edge of the blue background; a small piece in the top border 8" from the top left corner where the loss extended into the blue background; a small piece in the top border 8" from the right border extending into the red background; and finally, a piece in the right border 12" from the top right corner extending into the orange and yellow background; there were some tiny areas of paper loss at a couple of crossfolds and some minor separation and minor creases on some foldlines. Basically there was very little at all wrong with the poster, and the above basically minor defects are the only ones I could find, even after studying over the poster for some time from inches away! Whoever restored the poster did an excellent job, and the above minor defects were so well restored that you can't see them at all from any distance away. The poster truly has little restoration, and I can't imagine a collector who would not be happy to display it on their wall!
