[Item #41784] Defend the Gainesville Vets. NEW LEFT - GRAPHICS, Vietnam Veterans Against the War Defense Committee, Peter G. COHEN.

Defend the Gainesville Vets

N.p. Vietnam Veterans Against the War, 1973. First Edition. Original offset lithographed poster in colors, 56cm x 43cm (22" x 17"). Fine, fresh, apparently unused example.

Poster sold as a fundraiser for the defense of the Gainesville Eight, a group of Florida Vietnam veterans who were accused (on dubious evidence) of conspiracy to disrupt the 1972 Republican National Convention in Miami Beach. All eight defendants, including the reputed ringleader Scott Camil, were eventually acquitted. A rare poster, and this is a lovely, fresh example. Not catalogued in OCLC; we note only one institutionally-held copy (Library of Congress).

Price: $450.00
