    Rare & Important Travel Posters

    November 19

    Our autumn auction features fantastic Ocean Liner posters, including Willem Frederick Ten Broek's Holland-America Line, 1936. Other Classic Ocean Liner images from A.M. Cassandre, Van't Hoff and other artists represent most of the iconic companies including Cunard, Italian Line and North German Llyod, among others. A large number of American railway images by masters like Leslie Ragan, Bern Hill, John Held, Jr. and Gustave Krollmann promote the fabulous views and luxury of smooth travel by rail. Rail travel images from other locales showcase similar splendor, including Norman Wilkinson's poster depicting a view of London landmark St. Paul's Cathedral from the LMS Railway. 

    Percy Trompf's iconic image of Bondi Beach conjures nostalgia for a bygone era, while rarely seen images promoting travel to India and Egypt promise grand sites and exotic flair. This sale will also feature an extensive collection of Intourist posters advertising travel through the former Soviet Union in the 1930s.
