Product Details

 

This lithograph is from WW1 and the accompaning verse touches something in my soul, I cannot look at this piece and not get a lump in my throat. Look closely at the first photo above and see if it has the same effect on you. Then when I was researching this piece to put it in the shop it heightened my feelings for it.

This vintage lithograph and verse are from a 1915 publication - "The Queen's Gift Book." This vintage ephemera piece measures 7 x 9 1/2". The lithograph is tipped onto the paper. It is in near mint condition with minimal yellowing of the paper.

The Queen's Gift Book, was a collection of stories and poems by some of the most famous writers of the day, it was published in 1915 to raise money for hospitals for soldiers and sailors who had lost their limbs in the war. Some of the best known contributors included Arthur Conan Doyle (author of Sherlock Holmes), J.M.Barrie (author of Peter Pan), Joseph Conrad (author of The Heart of Darkness and John Buchan (author of The Thirty Nine Steps), together with many writers well known in their day but no longer read today.

The book includes writing in a range of genres, from comedy to sentiment, most with little relationship to the war. It's a revealing collection, as in 1915 the general public was still expecting the war to come to an end relatively quickly.

Price: $40.00

Quantity in Stock: 1
