This poster was issued during WWI to promote the sale of Liberty Bonds. The simple image of a stoic Abraham Lincoln in profile and a quote from his Gettysburg Address “That Government Of The People, By The People And For The People Shall Not Perish From The Earth” underscores the urgent need for Americans to Buy Liberty Bonds. The lower margin indicates this poster was printed by the American Lithographic Company of New York.
This original antique poster has been professionally linen backed. A few lateral crease lines have been mitigated and a short tear at the top edge has been expertly repaired. There is minor staining to the linen mount in the upper left hand corner not affecting the poster. Overall condition is very good.
