The following are examples of the terminology used in an auction catalog.

While every reasonable effort has been made to ensure that the statements made in the catalogue are correct, all statements and terms in this catalogue are subject to the provisions of the Conditions of Sale (particularly paragraphs 7 and 8) and the Galleries and Consignors make no warranties or representations with respect to any lot. Condition is noted according to a simplified rating, which has ben accepted by most poster dealers. The following ratings, which have been used, with appropriate (+) or (-) indicated slightly better or worse condition.

Condition A designates a poster in very fine condition: the colors are fresh there is no significant paper loss, but there may be some slight blemish or scuffing.

Condition B designates a poster in good condition: light staining may be more pronounced, but not in the image.

If there is minor restoration it is not apparent. There may be some discoloration or light-staining.

Condition C designates a poster in fair condition light staining may be more pronounced, restoration, folds, or flaking are visible, and there may be some paper loss, but the poster is intact and the image clear.

All posters are linen-backed unless otherwise indicated. Some are unbacked, and some are framed.
