    Burton Holmes Travel Pictures (Paramount, 1921). "The Philippino National Guard" Poster (27.5" X 42.25").
    The Travelogue began with Burton Holmes. He started with a lecture and accompanied his shows with hand colored glass slides. But as film became more popular, he followed the trend and incorporated films shot abroad into his lectures. His "travelogues"-- as he called them-- became so popular that Hollywood came calling and he began to distribute his films through Paramount and MGM. This episode, The Philippino National Guard was released at the height of his cinematic production. The poster has had airbrush and touch-up work done to all the borders and folds due to minor chipping, with a bit more to the center-points. This is a beautiful stone litho from the peak of Burton Holmes career. Very Good+ on Linen.

    Estimate: $600 - $1,200.
