Important Added Info:

What IS linenbacking? Learn More

Overall Condition and Pre-Restoration Defects with Quality of Restoration: very good. The poster had creases, tears, and some scuffs on parts of some foldlines. It was backed on to a very thin linen, apparently because someone wanted to remove the foldlines and to be able to easily display the poster. There is no excess linen, and no restoration was performed.
