Gentleman Jim is heralded as the "Vainqueur de John L. Sullivan & Charles Mitchell" to promote his 8 performances at the famed Folies-Bergère. The classic French poster has been restored and linen-backed, resulting in an apparent VG-EX appearance. Close inspection reveals scattered creases, touch-ups, in-painting, small paper fills and sealed edge tears—all of which is primarily peripheral and little affects Corbett himself. Dimensions are 23-3/4" x 32-3/4". A stamp imprint for the noted printer "Imprimerie Chaix" (located on rue
Bergère) appears in the lower-right corner.
