World War I Propaganda
Poster (Leslie-Judge Co., 1917). Artist: James Montgomery Flagg.
At the top of his career, James Montgomery Flagg was the highest paid
magazine illustrator in America. This important recruitment poster for the
U.S. Army was perhaps the crowning achievement of his great body of work.
Using his own image to avoid having to hire a model (adding only some age
and a white goatee), he fashioned one of the most successful recruitment
posters ever printed. Indeed, it was a design that saw millions of copies
printed through the years, and was even revived for WWII.
These can be very difficult to find in any condition! A long
time can go by without one of these coming up for sale. You will
have trouble finding a nicer one.
to Linen Backing this poster had several imperfections, some of
which may or may not still be visible under extremely close inspection. Not in perfect shape, but still very presentable.
Typical fold line touch up, cross fold & border repair/restoration. Looks
beautiful! Well preserved.
We evaluate and grade our linen backed posters
to linen backing / restoration. We do this because after a poster has been
restored it can sometimes be very difficult to determine exactly what was done
to it. Our restorers are world renowned and can make a poster look Near Mint and
flawless even if it originally had several unsightly defects.
This is NOT a reprint or reproduction poster!
We are absolutely certain it is authentic.

Packages shipped this way can easily get
lost and/or sometimes take several weeks to arrive. There are NO
TRACKING NUMBERS when Airmail is used and there is no way of knowing
where the package is or if it is even delivered. You may be willing to
take the risk to save a few dollars, but we are not. We strive to
provide excellent service and we just can't do that if we use an
unreliable delivery method like Airmail. Please do not fault us for not
offering this cheaper unacceptable shipping option.
