    "Through the Centre of the Earth" The Blondells Musical Comedy Poster, Circa 1905. "Book by Edward Blondell. Music by Harry Von Tilzer." 20" x 30", chromolithography by The Gillin Print Co. of New York and Philadelphia. A large, green dragonlike creature dominates this poster with three human characters around. While Edward Blondell and his contributions to musical comedy are largely forgotten, composer Harry Von Tilzer is quite well known for songs such as "Wait 'Til the Sun Shines Nellie" and "I Want a Girl Just Like the Girl who Married Dear Old Dad." Dampstaining at bottom, general edge roughness and crinkling, several repairs on verso, colors bold and bright, overall very good condition.
