About this Item

VG+. First and only printing.Yellow background printed on heavy cardboard, with large JW Smith circular image at the top (12" in diameter) and information regarding the agencies supported by the Welfare Federation listed at the bottom. Also notes : "Unaided by Federal or State funds - THIS IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY - November 12 to November 28". This poster is pictured on page 163 of Nudelman, with a full description on the following page. For a poster intended for window or other display, this is in remarkably good condition. The poster is complete with no chips or surface scratches, and the printed portion of the poster (i.e. excluding the 1/2" margin on each side) is relatively clean. The white border does show some light to medium browning in various places (most noticeable upper and lower RH corners) that resembles the effects of some prior contact with dampness or water, but it really doesn't extend onto the printed portion except for some faint and not objectionable tanning along portions of the LH side.Since the picture in Nudelman of this poster not only shows some edge browning, but some corner dings and chips, this is in as good if not better condition than that example, and thus as good as any dedicated Jessie Willcox Smith collector (or Philadelphia area collector) can expect to find.This has to be an extremely rare poster given the ephemeral nature of all posters like this as well as its clearly localized short-term content (highlighting a short 2 week period limited solely to the Philadelphia area). The image itself resembles the cover image on Smith's 1909 book 'The Seven Ages of Childhood', but instead of the one figure used there this poster shows three children and differs in many other respects as well.You will not be disappointed with this clearly very scarce item.
