Important Added Info: How many times do you ever see ANY pre-war French Universal horror posters offered for auction or sale? Unless you are a super human person who has contact with people I have never met who have posters I have never seen, then probably almost never! This is an incredibly rare opportunity to purchase an original 1933 French poster from The Invisible Man, and it is a size that will fit in anyone's home! I am already envious of the new owner of this poster!

What IS linenbacking? Learn More

Overall Condition and Pre-Restoration Defects with Quality of Restoration: very good. The poster had some bits of paper loss at the top and bottom right crossfolds. There were some tiny scuffs on parts of the foldlines. There was a circular stain in the lower left in the bottom of the coat (in the solid white background). There were some very tiny tears in the borders. There were a few scuffs scattered in the solid colored areas. Overall, the poster was in very good condition prior to linenbacking. The poster was backed onto a thin linen with no excess and very slight restoration. Certainly, I would think that any collector would be happy to display this poster exactly as it is, but of course, it could also be re-backed.
