"The Spirit of 1917", a superb color recruiting poster for the United States Marine Corps in World War I, this example having been overprinted at the bottom for a recruiting station in Albany, New York. The poster is 18 by 25 3/4 inches in size, with metal strips on the top and bottom edges, with the upper strip having a ring for hanging the poster. There is some typical surface soiling from age but the colors remain bright, the image is dramatic, and the poster is in overall excellent condition.
