    "A. M. Palmer's Company Trilby" Stage Play Advertising Poster, Circa 1895. "Dramatized by Paul M. Potter By Arrangement with Harper Bros." 30" x 40", chromolithography by Metropolitan Print of New York, copyrighted by Harper Bros. This poster, from the successful play based on the famous novel by George du Maurier, depicts the roguish bearded hypnotist Svengali standing next to the seated heroine, the lovely Trilby. Albert M. Palmer was a noted New York theater manager in the late nineteenth century and "Trilby" was his greatest success. Fold with weakness and slight paper loss, remains of a second poster still attached at the lower border, edge tears, extensive tape repairs on verso, about very good overall.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
