1912 Le Mans poster.
This vintage original for the ‘Grand Prix de France, 1912’ was for the very first event run at Circuit Du Mans. This early piece is incredibly rare and in very good ‘A’ condition on linen, and still bears its original tax stamp. It is quite large measuring 39.25 x 55″ and features art by E. Guillaume of a speeding Mercedes (Peugeot?) and Fiat racers. The event was won by a Jules Goux in a Peugeot L-76.
This is the very first Le Mans poster and is of course rare and expensive. There are less than 5 known examples on the planet! (K04C)
