    Description

    Around the World with Burton Holmes (MGM, 1922). One Sheet (27" x 41"). It is estimated that Burton Holmes gave over 8,000 illustrated travel lectures, using slides and motion pictures, from the 1890s to the 1950s. He traveled to every continent and to every country he could, circling the globe six times. Astoundingly, almost all his journeys took place before the invention of the airplane! In 1922, MGM brought the Burton Holmes story to the big screen, showing the adventures of the world traveler to audiences across the nation. The poster has fold line separation, pinholes, small holes, and paper loss in the lower left corner. It has had expert restoration, rendering these defects almost imperceptible. Very Fine- on Linen.
