What IS linenbacking? Learn More

Note that this poster ships in a very long tube (at least 33" long, but possibly 50" long or more). Therefore the shipping for this poster will be more than that for a poster that ships in a tube 32" or shorter, and possibly much more. Please bear this added shipping expense in mind before bidding on this poster. You can tell how long of a tube this poster needs to ship in by looking at the shorter dimension of its length and width and then adding 4" to that (so a 47" x 63" poster will need to ship in a 51" long tube).

Overall Condition and Pre-Restoration Defects with Quality of Restoration: good to very good. The poster had some faint stains scattered in the top blank border and in the top of the right blank border. It appears they were surely there prior to the poster being backed, because the linen behind it is not affected. It had small paper loss at some crossfolds and some creases, tears, and tiny paper loss on small parts of some folds, with a few creases scattered in non-fold areas. Overall, the poster was in good to very good condition prior to linenbacking. The poster was well backed, but either the restorer did not address the faint stains in the top of the poster described above, or the poster acquired them after it was backed. Since they are primarily in the borders, one could still display the poster as it is, or certainly, any restorer could perform the slight additional restoration to those stains that would make them unnoticeable, without re-backing the poster. That will be the choice for the winning bidder on this very rare poster.
