    Carter the Great (c.1927). Folded, Very Fine+. 16 Sheet Poster (108" X 158").
    Carter the Great, born Charles Joseph Carter in 1874, was a an illusionist whose skills were said to rival one of his famous contemporaries, Harry Houdini. Offered here for the first time at Heritage is a gorgeous stone litho 16-sheet poster placing Carter in line with other great magicians who had come and gone before him. Printed in the top right corner, as if giving their approval to the examples of Carter's magic printed below, are magicians Alessandro Cagliostro, Ching Ling Foo, Alexander Herrmann, and Harry Kellar. The poster comes in eight panels as originally printed, and it has some moderate creases in part of the text and image area which occurred during the printing process. The poster displays beautifully with some additional minor creases, small tears and chips mostly in the borders, mild fold seperations, light edge and fold wear, pinholes, a bit of subtle toning in folds, and faint smudges. The printing in one of the lower panels near the ace of hearts if a little offset.
