Condition of posters

The criteria used to evaluate posters, particularly old ones, differ considerably from those generally employed in the evaluation of printed works. A poster may still be given «A» classification, for example, even if it is slightly crumpled or soiled or if there are minor tears outside the actual picture.

A = Poster in good condition. Picture completely preserved. Wrinkles and small tears, if any, restricted to edges.
B = Picture completely preserved. Wrinkles and tears possible
C = Poster restored
aJ = Mounted on Japanese vellum
aL = Mounted on linen
aF = Mounted on foil

We should also like to draw your attention to the possibility of viewing works at the pre-auction display.
