Thanks Paul, appreciate the speediness of help and response.
It was as I feared. I have a Dr No quad but it is not as I would like. It is however, 30x40 too. Another one has popped up via the SaleRooms site in the UK but it has been trimmed by just a 1/4 of an inch, height and width. Otherwise, it would have been nice.
Oh well. Moving on.
Quick update to the above.
Turns out that the Dr No quad on offer via Astons Auctioneers last week was not taken fully out of the crappy frame for measuring. This was as stipulated by the consignor. Why, one might ask? Because it looks better in the frame and is more likely to sell, they were told. And much against the auctioneers' better interests, they complied.
As it happens, I had time to follow the auction online and the Dr No quad was the last item to be auctioned. Immediately prior to the auctioning, a special announcement was made saying that after all, Astons had taken it out of the frame and had discovered that in fact, the poster was the full 30x40. One edge had been folded back to fit in the frame.
I had specifically asked the auctioneers to remove entirely from the frame to check all edges for folding... Luckily I was online as I then went on to win it.
So, why buy this one as well as the one from Vectis earlier this year. I was disappointed with the quad from Vectis as the restoration and backing had had pretty much the entire poster repainted. I had taken to a restorer for an opinion as to whether it could have been re-restored but he said, not really. To this end, I reckon I will frame and display the restored version, since it does display well, but I now also have the pure unadulterated and unbacked copy.
A minor indulgence.
I will pop photos up in the relevant thread (What's on walls / James Bond etc.?) once framed and hung.
