Artist: Gaston

Condition: good to very good. The poster had tiny paper loss at the crossfolds, a 1 1/2" tear in the left of the top foldline, a 2 1/2" tear in the middle foldline in Grayson's sleeve, and some small tears in the rest of the vertical foldline. There was some bleed through from writing on the back near the center of the image and some creases, smudges, and tears around the edges of the poster. There was a censor stamp in the top left corner. Overall, the poster was in good to very good condition prior to linenbacking. The restorer linenbacked the poster "in the European style", meaning that they did not do restoration to the tiny defects, but they are really not at all distracting (and any restorer could easily touch them up without re-backing the poster). Note that the top border of the poster is lightly rippled along the linen.
