About This Item

Luxeuil: M. Patteguy, [circa early 1930s]. Broadside measuring 112 x 76 cm (44 x 30”). Printed on two sheets of roughly equal size, one coated blue-gray, the other coated red, pasted together as issued. Folded with three vertical and seven horizontal creases, and in want of professional flattening. Else good. Small chips and tears at several of the intersections of the folds and to the edges, with minimal impact on lettering; slight toning along some folds. A large poster addressed to the citizens of Luxeuil, France, thanking them for hosting a celebration in commemoration of Franco-American cooperation in World War I and the American volunteer aviators who flew in the Lafayette Escadrille. Beginning in 1916, Luxeuil served as the Lafayette Escadrille's base of operations. The poster contains messages of gratitude from Gen. Stanley H. Ford, representing the U.S. Ambassador to France; Paul Rockwell, brother of Lafayette Escadrille hero, Kiffin Yates Rockwell; French aviator, Capt. Nazare-Aga; Maurice de Barneville, attaché at the American embassy; and Madame Ovington, daughter of aviator, Carter Landram Ovington. We are aware of one other copy of the poster, in the James Rogers McConnell Memorial Collection at the University of Virginia, with the finding aid giving the imputed date of 1931. We were unable to locate any other copies in OCLC, BnF, KVK, the Smithsonian, the National WWI Museum, or the Imperial War Museum.�
