If you know who did the art (if any), please let us know.
Important Added Info: Note that this poster is very old, and it would not make sense to attempt to roll it, as the paper is fragile enough that rolling it would likely damage it. Therefore we intend to send it in a very large flat package. Please bear that extra shipping cost in mind BEFORE placing a bid on this poster!

Note that this item needs to be shipped in an oversized flat package. Some of these items can ONLY be sent in flat packages, and could not possibly be rolled into a tube. On some of them (for example f it is a size that might ordinarily be rolled in a tube, like a half-sheet), the reason it is in this auction is specifically because we feel it either CAN'T be rolled or because we feel it would be a mistake to roll it, because it might well damage the item. In the case of the few items that could be rolled, we will roll the item in a tube if the new owner insists, but only if they accept that they can't return the item if it is damaged from being rolled. So please bear in mind that this item must be sent in a LARGE flat package (the size of the package will depend on the size of the item), and bear this added expense in mind before placing a bid on it.

Condition: good. There is paper loss in the lower left border, and it extends into the background at bottom left. There are nail holes in the other three corners and a 4" tear near the middle of the left border that has tape on the back of it. Obviously, this poster can be restored, but bear in mind its condition and the cost of restoration before placing a bid.
