This fragile 16 x 21.5 inches, 12 pages, pressbook for Chandu the Magician, starring Bela Lugosi as the sinister villain, is very impressive. Unfortunately, the pulpy paper has taken a beating. I was surprised when the dealer and collector I purchased this from sent the pressbook folded sharply to a quarter of its size, which caused further damage to the interior pages. I expected saner handling, especially from a fellow collector. Oh well, at least I have it. Here's the Return of Chandu pressbook portfolio that was also impressive, and the Mexican lobby card.
