      42x31 inches, 106 3/4x78 3/4 cm. Lucien Serre & Cie., Paris.
      Condition B+: repaired tear at left edge into central image; creases and staining in margins and image; repaired tears, punch holes and creases in margin. Framed.
      This poster was popular enough to be reprinted in a smaller format soon after its original printing. There are very slight differences between the two variants, the most obvious being the placement of the PLM logo. In this first printing, the logo is tucked away in the lower left corner, but in the later printing, it is situated several inches above the bottom margin. A more obvious distinction between the two is the printer's address. 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, Art of Skiing p. 52, Voyage p. 113.
