About This Item

Kharkov: Izdanie F. I. Kuzmina, [ca. 1915-1916]. Broadside on purple stock, measuring 55 × 35 cm, printed to recto and verso, with decorative header. Old horizontal and vertical creases; light discoloration; pre-revolutionary stamp of the Imperatorskii Moskovskii Muzei (Moscow State Historical Museum); else about very good. This WWI propaganda poster published in the Russian Empire outlines the action along the Western, Italian, Russian and Eastern fronts for July-December of the year, declaring the certainty of German defeat. Likely printed with the intention of raising the morale of the local population of Kharkov (modern day Ukraine), the poster presents the information as predictions of the "world famous Colonel Harrison" a fictional persona possibly a reference to an eponymous character from Alexander Duma's "Three Musketeers." The header of the poster reads: "Up until recently these predictions were realized with remarkable precision although occasionally with a significant delay. We are printing the predictions of Colonel Harrison, pertaining to the subsequent course of events." A poem printed at the bottom of the poster uses the acrostic form to spell out "Germany will perish". We cannot trace any copies aside from the one held by the Russian National Library. As of June 2020, not in KVK, OCLC.
