CUSTOMS AND TRADITIONS OF THE CANADIAN ARMED FORCES

CUSTOMS AND TRADITIONS OF THE CANADIAN ARMED FORCES

Sku: #15116
Author: Russell, E.C.
Publisher: Deneau & Greenberg, Ottawa
Date Published: 1980
Edition: 1st Edition
Summary: The author has researched and gathered the threads of armed forces traditions, beliefs, ideas and attitudes, coloured them with scenes of historical significance and woven them into an extremely interesting and highly readable tapestry. These customs and traditions, some of which will perhaps seem arcane in the extreme to the civilian reader, are extremely important to those who honour and maintain them. They will fight to keep them, if that's necessary. Photos.

Condition

Below is a simplified description table for the posters offered by The Grenadier. (each lower grade may contain the flaws listed in the higher grades):

Condition A+
Mint. Like new: rarely seen in original vintage posters.

Condition A
This poster has no paper loss, has retained fresh colors, and has no restoration. It is very clean with fresh, bright colors. It may not be perfect, but any minor flaws are unobtrusive and not harmful to the image area.

Condition A-
The poster may have minor, unobtrusive restoration, perhaps minor age toning, evidence of folio folds. Colors are strong. Any minor paper loss will be confined to the borders, not affecting the image area. This is the "normal" collectable condition for original vintage posters.

Condition B+
The poster may have minor restoration, perhaps minor age toning, and evidence of folio folds (like those graded A-) which may have been retouched. Colors are strong. Any minimal repairs will not detract from the quality of the image. They may have minor paper loss, usually limited to the border area, which may have been replaced. Evidence of tape residue or removal may be visible in the corners or border area.

Condition B
Posters in this range are usually described as being in "very good condition." There may be unobtrusive restoration of small missing pieces and/or repaired tears at the edges or at folio folds, but the work will not be detrimental to the quality of the image. Colors are fresh and the restoration is not considered "significant."

Condition B-
The paper may show minor evidence of handling. Paper toning may be evident. Paper acid burns at original folio folds may be evident.

Condition C
This poster is in fair to good condition with need for restoration or with restoration work which is evident. There may be minor paper loss, some fading in the image area, folds, or tears. The image, however, is intact and the artist's intention is evident. “C” posters may show visible wear, fold lines, tape residue or light foxing. These posters will have had professional, archival restoration work.

Condition D
This grade denotes a poster with significant flaws: missing pieces, serious fading, poor restoration, dry mounting, etc. Such posters are not considered collectable.
