    Jules Keller: The Human Enigma (c. 1904). Fine+ on Paper. Poster (25.25" X 36").
    Paralysed in his youth, Jules Keller developed his upper body to perform amazing feats with his arms. Billed as the "Human Enigma," he appeared in numerous Vaudeville productions in the early 1900s. Corresponding to its age, this stone litho poster shows edge wear, pinholes, mild creases, and moderate tears. Also visible are some stains at the top and bottom, snipe remnants below the printing, as well as chips in the upper right corner. This poster is backed on heat-mount tissue and would be an excellent candidate for restoration. Fine+ on Paper.

    Estimate: $1,000 - $2,000.
