    First Book Lottery: Book Instead of Vodka (1930). Very Fine- on Linen. Russian Advertising Poster (38.75" X 28"). Foreign.
    The stone litho Russian poster offered in this lot comes from the country's first book lottery, a joint event between the Society for the Suppression of Alcoholism and the State Publishing House as part of the Soviet government's push to end alcohol addiction in Russia. A partially restored poster with bright color and a clean overall appearance. It may have general signs of use, such as edge wear, slight fold separation and fold wear, creases, or small tears. Touchup has been applied to some of these issues. There are a couple of minor chips and a thin sliver of paper loss in the lower left corner. The linen has been trimmed to the borders. Grades on all restored items are pre-restoration grades.
