Measures 14"x 21". The bottom right is marked "Publisher's Warehouse, 10 Nikitsky Blvd. Apt. 9". The text at the bottom is an account of the capture of the city of Lwow (Lemberg, currently Lviv), one of the series of Russia's victories over Austria-Hungary in the opening stages of WW1. According to the caption, the Russian Army commanded by General Ruzskiy inflicted a crushing defeat on the Austrian 3rd Army and on 21st August, entered Lwow. Unlike most of the later WW1 posters, this early lithograph is black and white, and depicts the field of battle more realistically than the traditional Lubok style. There is a portrait of General Ruzskiy in the upper right - note that he is wearing an Order of Vladimir 2nd cl. (later, he was also awarded with an Order of St. George 2nd cl. for his leadership in the battle of Lwow and further offensive toward Przemysl).

In excellent condition. There are only a couple of tiny tears to the right margin, no other damage.
