ROGER BRODERS (1883-1953) FUNICULAIRE / CHAMONIX - PLANPRAZ LE BREVENT. 1928.
42 1/2x31 inches, 108x79 cm. Lucien Serre, Paris.
This poster was popular enough to be reprinted in a smaller format a year or so after its original printing. Besides the size, there are very slight differences between the two printings, the most obvious being the placement of the PLM logo. On the first printing the logo is tucked away in the lower left corner, but in the later printing, is situated several inches above the bottom margin. A more obvious distinction between the two is the printer's imprint. When it was first printed Lucien Serre was working out of "19 rue du Terrage." By the time the poster was reprinted, the printer had expanded and was working from "15, 17, 19 rue du Terrage." Alpi / Manifesti 59, Broders p. 69, Perry / Broders p. 78, Hillier p 71, Hillion p. 200, Skiing p. 52, Voyage p. 113. this is the first edition
