FIRST MEN IN THE MOON, 1964. Original H.G. Wells 1 sheet (27 x 41” / 68 x 104 cm) movie cinema poster for sale; starring Edward Judd, Martha Hyer, Lionel Jeffries, director Nathan Juran and writers Nigel Kneale (screenplay) and H.G. Wells (author of the 1901 Novel). HG Wells was not the first to be almost precognitive in inventions that would come, he along side with Jules Verne had eerie knacks of imagining inventions that were decades or over a hundred years off from coming to pass; (submarines, landing on the moon, Television news casts, lunar modules, tazers, automatic doors, gene engineering and lazers). Perhaps they were just good at seeing how human invention would eventually evolve based on physical limitations of reality, or maybe they were just fanciful dreamers; either way, their fame is not trivial and it can be seen in the value of some their posters selling at famous auction houses over the years.
This folded poster is in fairly good C6 condition and has noticeable wear, tears, leftover tape, and paper loss along the margins at all 4 corners and top and bottom center folds; minor color loss along fold lines; and a 4-5″ vertical tear from center top margin into the ‘D’ in “Astounding”. We highly recommend this poster be linen backed to help improve above imperfections – this process would help render the torn margins nearly unnoticeable by adding in vintage paper. We charge an additional $80 for this service upon request. For more information on linen backing please click here
Condition C6. For Sale $225
