Good pair of World War I propaganda posters, both advertising the issue of war bonds used to support the Allied cause. Includes: highly graphic poster, 19" x 25 1/2", depicting a soldier crying out for help as he is ensnared in barbed wire in "no man's land", beneath the title "Remember the Bond". A publishing line at bottom right indicates that the image illustration was executed by cartoonist Oscar Cesare, originally for the New York Evening Post, and his printed artist's signature appears just above. At bottom left appears the note: "Color Plates made and donated by Powers Engraving Co., N.Y." Two additional pencil inscriptions appear at the bottom edge, and the poster shows mounting remnants on the verso and a 1/2" hole to the top right corner, else very good. WITH: a second full-color poster, 20" x 30", featuring a vibrant depiction of Philadelphia circa 1776, with a large image of the Liberty Bell at top left. The poster is again titled "Ring It Again", and continues: "Buy U.S. Gov't Bonds", with "Third Liberty Loan" at bottom. It is labeled "8-A" at bottom left, with the publishing line "Sackett & Wilhelms Corp. N.Y." at bottom right. Shows original mailing folds, else very good. Two pieces.
