Very large, visually arresting World War I propaganda poster, 61 x 78 in., printed across two sheets, presenting a stark black and white illustration of a lifeboat full of grim-faced sailors manning oars and tending to blanket-wrapped women and children, as one sailor gestures towards their sinking ship and the ominous silhouette of a German U-boat in the background. The title "Help Your Country Stop This", with the exhortation "Enlist in the Navy" at bottom. The printed initials "F B", for artist Frank Brangwyn, appear at bottom left, and the publishing line "American Lithographic Co., N.Y." appears at bottom center. Shows original mailing folds, with notable tears to the top and bottom edges of each sheet, and to the right edge of the left sheet, else very good. Estimated accordingly.
