If you’re a true Cappiello lover, then you already have the big black Cappiello book which features this poster as plate 514, on page 316.
"This worker stomping out corruption and other vermin on behalf of L’Action Combattante epitomizes a group of militant radical activists originally founded in 1901 by Henry Berenger, a senator from Guadeloupe. It served various causes over the years; during World War II, for example, it issued a clandestine newspaper of the French Resistance." [The Posters of Leonetto Cappiello by Jack Rennert]

The poster is in B condition on linen, with original fold lines still visible.
