'From Liege to Aix-la-Chapelle, 1914'
 Lithograph published (1916) by  Louis Raemaekers (April 6, 1869 – July 26, 1956). He was a Dutch painter and editorial cartoonist for the Amsterdam newspaper De Telegraaf during World War I, noted for his anti-German stance.A cartoon of this type, coloured in red and black, depicted the lower part of a railway truck, from which pools of blood were seeping onto the track. The caption on the postcard version was simply "FROM LIEGE TO AIX‑LA‑CHAPELLE".In 1916, Francis Stopford thought this picture was "the most terrible which Raemaekers has ever done and the simplest...each of us knows what is in the goods‑van and we shudder at its hideous hidden freight.". This is a contemporary print still tipped on to its backing sheet but with discolouration (easily removed) from an idiot securing it with masking tape . Some abrasions to the surface . .  the white marks in the blood, but stunningly rare and evocative of the time. £55 inc delivery
