Condition: very good. numerous small black marks around the left, right, and bottom blank borders (they look as though they could be a printing defect and they did not extent into the image); tiny separation and paper loss at the top crossfold; some minor creases and smudges along the foldlines and to a lesser extent in the solid white background areas; The poster is in better condition than the above makes it sound! The poster is in nice unrestored condition (there is not a piece of tape or a pinhole anywhere on it), and the colors are bright. Its defects are the sort that would vanish if it were linenbacked and the poster would look wonderful without having hardly any paint anywhere on it!
