Scraps of Paper, German Proclamations in Belgium and France (World War 1) 1917 First Edition

SKU: biblio 26 $175.00
The Title is: Scraps of Paper: German Proclamation in Belgium & France. Published by Hodder and Stoughton in 1916. The collection of posters were accurately reproduced in this 37 page work. Retains front cover and back cover with some paper loss to the back cover and along the edges are minor tears and all along the spine is a loss of paper. Interior however, is bright and clean and the graphics are stunning, crisp and fresh. Ian Malcolm and M.P. in Parliament had this publication put together. In it are the real copies with full color matching reproduction and the corresponding English Translation of what the Poster Says: Several of the Posters call out the Execution of Belgium and French citizens for crimes against the German military with their names and occupations posted as well and date of execution by firing squad. A very nice piece and very hard to find. There are 17 proclamations and the piece measures 15" by 11". This publication was put together and might we also say, from fliers that were collected from occupied territories! Reproduced and offered to the public to rouse up the public against Germany in World War 1. The price after publication was 1 shilling, pales by what it cost to put this work together. The 1 shilling probably didn't even cover the paper cost. 167 Libraries have hard copies of this publication.
