    Description

    Buy Liberty Bonds (Lincoln) (Lot of 3) 30" x 20" Artist: unsigned. Printed for the Third Liberty Loan. This poster features a quote from President Lincoln, "That government of the people, by the people, for the people shall not perish from the earth." This quote is taken from the last lines of the Gettysburg address which was delivered on November 19, 1863. The use of this quote to promote patriotic feelings is a masterful use of historical allusion. The civil war was the last "great war" in which the United States had engaged. The art on this poster, while unsigned, is stunning. The background appears to be copper, with the tarnish and scratch marks of an old penny. A stunning piece which you cannot afford to miss!

    Condition:
    Poster 1-Superior, some dirt on the edges.
    Poster 2-Fine; paper is slightly brittle, pink liquid on the back has stained the paper on the verso.
    Poster 3-Superior, normal edge wear from rolling/storage.
