    Description

    Eugene V. Debs: Truly Delectable "Working Class Candidate" Poster. 11" x 14" cardboard poster titled "The Working Class Candidate For President". It features a portrait of the Socialist "Eugene V. Debs of Indiana" who was slated to speak at Washington Hall on October 9th [1904]. Printed in Chicago. Currently matted. Minor loss to lower left corner, faint lateral scratch across the portrait, teensy hole in the plain field. We recall seeing an example of the collection of hobby pioneer Joseph F. McGee. This may, in fact, be the very same. Exceptional. Pictured in Arthur Schlesinger's Running for President, The Candidates and Their Images 1900-1992, p. 42.
