7 Paret, Peter & Beth Irwin Lewis & Paul Paret & Hoover Institution Persuasive Images. Posters of War and Revolution from the Hoover Archives.
Princeton University Press 1992 0691032041 / 9780691032047 First Edition Hardcover Very Good in Good dust jacket 
233 pages, well illustrated in color, cloth, dust jacket, very good. 8.5 by 11 inches. Embossed label of the former owner, a noted military collector. From Publishers Weekly: "Reproducing 317 posters in the Hoover Institution's collection from the Soviet Union, western and central Europe and the United States, this punchy survey focuses on the two world wars, but also traces events and styles from the Belle Epoque to postwar Europe. Among the book's interesting revelations: during WW I, American and British posters used images of atrocity far more frequently than did German posters, while Russia and Germany were the principal exploiters of atrocity propaganda in WW II. American visual responses to the Second World War ranged from Ben Shahn's sophisticated attack on Nazi brutality to crude, racist caricatures of Japanese. Post-1945 posters include graphics protesting Stalinist repression, nuclear arms, German remilitatization and U. S. Intervention in Vietnam. In their thoughtful narrative, Peter Paret (a Princeton historian) , Lewis (an art historian at the College of Wooster in Ohio) and Paul Paret (a graduate student in art history) consider posters both as works of applied art and as agents of persuasion and control." ; 11.30 X 8.80 X 1.10 inches; 233 pages

11 Rickards, Maurice Posters of the First World War
New York Walker & Company 1968 Hardcover Very Good in Very Good dust jacket 
Approximately 150 pages, 48 plates (some in color) , cloth, DJ, very good. 8-1/2 by 10 inches. From the dust jacket: The battlefields where millions died have gone green again. But the posters that helped to bring men to the fight remain unchanged. They speak with the same merciless urgency, the same command and conviction, as they did when they first appeared. Maurice Rickards, who is himself a poster artist - and incidentally a lifelong pacifist - has selected and written the informative introduction to this collection, published on the 50th anniversary of the 1918 Armistice. It is a challenge to us all. Here, summed up in two hundred and fifty posters, is the disparity, the futility, and the dignity of the human condition. ; pages
