Price : US $18.50
This 1919 printing ( the only date I could find was on a copy of a letter sent by President Woodrow Wilson ) of ' The POSTER, War Souvenir Edition ' is autographed by F. D. Casey, Art Editor at Collier's Weekly during the early 1900s ( I will be listing several books obtained from the Casey estate this week ) but this could be from his years at LIFE magazine ( the autograph indicates this but I have no information verifying it ). In a note from the editor, this book ... ' is issued in commemoration of the important part taken by members of the Poster Advertising Association, Inc. , in promotion of the various activities of the United States Government, and allied organizations, during the war.' The 8 3/4 x 12' book is loaded with patriotic billboard images and ads by noted artists of the times ( Howard Chandler Christy, Joseph Pennell, Gerrit Benckner, J. Scott Williams, etc. ), most in black and white. It is in good condition with only minor wear, roughness on some cover edges including light creases in corners and soiling to the cover. Media shipping will be determined by address ( I SHIP ONLY TO THE USA!!! ). Paypal only. Thanks for looking.
