This extremely rare original WWI poster is one of the actual newsprint broadsides posted in Paris on September 3, 1914 as the Kaiser's huge German Army was closing in on Paris. General Gallieni promised the citizens of Paris that he would defend the city. The entire fleet of Paris taxicabs was used to rush French reserves to the Battle of the Marne, which saved France from almost certain defeat.

Size: 19 3/4" x 25 3/4".

Printers imprint: Paris, Imp. Marcel Piccard, 140 rue de Faubourg-Saint Martin.

The poster was printed on fragile newsprint, but the condition is EXCELLENT following a MUSEUM-QUALITY RESTORATION. It has been professionally restored, de-acidified and backed with archival rice paper.


September 3rd


The members of the Government of the Republic have left Paris to give a fresh impulse to national defence.

I have been entrusted with the task of defending Paris against the invader.

That task I will fulfil to the end.

Commandant of the Army of Paris

Source: Source Records of the Great War, Vol. II, ed. Charles F. Horne, National Alumni 1923

This is a genuine and extremely rare piece of history from one of the turning points of the 20th century.
