    Harrison & Morton: Wonderful "Starry Flag is Our Talisman" Jugate Poster. If you purchase this fantastic poster, tell your fellow hobbyists "Eat your heart out!" But, all kidding aside, this is a great piece. It measures 40.5" x 27.5" and is titled: "'Protection' of American Interest, Country, Capital, Labor, Home." It features oval portraits of the 1888 Republicans, flanking a shield with crossed flags in the background. It is captioned "The Starry Flag is our Talisman". Appears to have been printed in a three-step process using wood blocks. Designated "Republican Campaign Banner No. 1", it was made by Hitchcock's Steam and Publishing House in New York City. Mounted to thick paper [not examined outside of frame]. Some areas of loss with tears, as shown, but essentially intact. Certainly, one of the best posters of the era, especially for a flag specialist.
