Title: New York Herald
Seller ID: heraldposter
Designer unknown, advertising poster for the New York Herald, June 5, 1898. Measuring about 11.5x19 inches or 29x48cm, with linen back adding 2 inches or 5cm all around. With initials HC, this designer is unknown to me. Newspaper posters of the 19th century were typically done on newspaper stock, made to last a week, and gone with the wind after that. Those I have seen are usually in desperately poor condition. The present poster is on a heavier stock, which would explain its survival. Condition of this print: Edge tears, chips and wrinkles professionally repaired. Minor stain near lower right edge.
