Condition: very good to fine. This poster was linenbacked, and it had very minor defects, and was well backed. Read below for a description of those defects, and about the quality of the restoration (if I found anything worth commenting on!). You should also look at our "super-sized" image of the actual poster (we are the only major auction company we know of that gives accurate detailed pre-restoration information about linenbacked posters to our bidders, but we wish everyone did!).

the poster had a tiny hole at the top crossfold and minor wear along the foldlines; there were some areas of paper loss across the top edge of the top blank border; a circular area of paper loss in the right end of the top border just touching the top edge of the image and two small areas of paper loss in the right blank border. Overall, this poster had next-to-no defects of any kind in the image area, and its basically minor border defects (which consisted of missing blank white paper, most on the edges far from the image) were extremely well corrected. The poster was beautifully linenbacked, and I can't imagine a collector who would not love to have this wonderful poster hanging on their wall!
