Important Added Info: Note that this poster was folded at one time but has been laying flat for a long time and will be sent rolled in a tube.

Condition: very good to fine. the poster had 5" of separation at the right end of the top foldline which was repaired with white tape from the back; there are tiny dot areas of paper loss at the crossfolds; there are minor creases and smudges around the edges of the poster; The poster is in better condition than the above makes it sound! The image area of the poster is in nice unrestored condition (except for the single piece of tape on the back), and the colors are bright. Its defects are very minor and would vanish if it were linenbacked and the poster would look wonderful!
