One thing many are unaware of is that Bruce published a companion poster and essay. Whereas the "Chinese Gung Fu" book sold for $5.00, the essay sold for $2.00 and the "instruction chart"/poster sold for only $1.00. I have no idea how many were sold but the ones I have (shown below) are the only ones I have seen in more than 40 years of collecting.
The poster is unhung with no holes in the corners or evidence of tape - some feathering along the edges but essentially very good condition with slight yellowing of the paper due to its age. It is a two-sided black/white poster folded in fourths. The full size is approximately 22 1/2" tall by 17 1/2" wide. My guess is that many less copies of the poster were sold than the book. Of the ones that were sold, it's likely many were poked with thumbtacks or hung up on walls with tape and then at some point torn down and thrown away. Click each picture for a larger version.
The essay is 11 pages including the cover in an 8.5" x 11" size. It is held together by two staples at the top. The cover is more yellowish color than the beige of the actual book. The essay includes basically the same photos and diagrams as the poster just presented in a different format.
If you have any information on this poster or have seen other authentic copies please drop me a note! Thanks.
