A pair of posters for 'The Famous, Original and Only | Lynch | Family | Bellringers | Glassophonists'

The posters (each 1010 × 380 mm) advertise this family of 'Instrumentalists, Vocalists & Comedians' and its supporting acts promising 'Character & Comedy, Scenas & Dances' - verily, a 'great success throughout the civilized world'. Printed by F.W. Niven Pty. Ltd., Printers, Lithographers, &c., Flinders Street, Melbourne, circa 1900 (one of the posters reprints a quote from the 'London Era', 3 August 1899). The text is printed in red (with the last three lines of one of them in blue). The illustrations - photolithographs of publicity shots - are printed in blue; there are nine on one poster and seven on the other, with only two in common. Lightly creased where loosely folded in three, with minor edge chips; overall, in excellent condition. [A duplicate copy of the example with seven illustrations is available on its own for $450]. [2 items].
