Condition: very good to fine. please look closely at our super-sized image!

This pressbook is in typical used condition, and is UNCUT, what many dealers would describe as "very good" or "very good to fine" condition. It is important to note that it is complete and UNCUT, which is unusual, since the purpose of pressbooks was for theaters to cut out one or more of the ads and use them in their local newspapers. It may have been folded in half horizontally, which is typical of almost all larger pressbooks. Oversized pressbooks were usually folded in half so that they could be more easily transported. This pressbook has some minor defects, which most likely mainly affect the front and back covers, as those are what was most exposed to the elements over the years. Note that since pressbooks did not have NSS numbers printed on them, it was common for poster exchanges to hand write the NSS number on the cover of the pressbook (either in pen or grease pencil), and while this is a defect, most collectors don't consider it a major one (since it is on so many pressbooks). Also, because the pressbook contains multiple pages and was looked through many times, there may be tears, creases, or smudges around the edges of the covers. If you look at the images we provide, you should get a good sense of what minor defects this pressbook has. I would think most collectors would be happy owning this pressbook (especially since it is complete and uncut!), but if you are very condition conscious, and are looking for this pressbook in excellent condition, then you shouldn't bid on this.
