Description: "Declaration to All Residents of the State of Israel", poster on behalf of the Provisional Government. "HaPoel HaTza'ir" cooperative press, Tel Aviv, May 14, 1948. The first poster printed on behalf of the Provisional Government. The poster calls on the state's residents to enlist in the protection of their homeland and its welfare: "In a time of a supreme ordeal, a time of malicious attack by enemies, the Provisional Government takes the rule of Israel into its hands"; "We have been thrust into a cruel war. But let us remember: within the confines of our state, citizens of Arab origin will continue to live - and for many of them this war will be abhorrent. We are obliged to protect their rights, their equal civil rights. We seek peace. Our hands are extended to them in partnership to build our homeland. Citizens! Let us protect the honor of our young state. Each one of us maintains it with his behavior, his pure standing, his clean hands. Each one of us maintains its safety and future." (Hebrew). 95X62.5 cm. Good condition. Folding marks and creases. Ink stamps. Some stains. Small tears to margins and minor holes near corners. Pencil marking on the front and pen marking on verso. Provenance: Shlomo Shva collection.
