    Description

    The Portrait (Thomas A. Edison, Inc., 1913). One Sheet (27" X 41").
    Marc McDermott and Miriam Nesbitt star in this silent short drama directed by George Lessey, a film almost completely lost to the annals of time, save for at least one known copy residing at the Museum of Modern Art in New York. Most notably, this film hails from the production house and distributor owned by the one and only Thomas Alva Edison, whose development of the Kinetoscope with his assistant and production supervisor, William Kennedy Dickinson, led to breakthrough technical innovations during the earliest days of the film industry. This beautiful stone litho one sheet shows a few creases and tears in the interior with tape on the verso to stabilize, edge tears with some going into the background, slight brittleness, and a very minor stain in the upper left corner. Linen, Fine/Very Fine.
