LESLIE'S ILLUSTRATED, New York, July 6, 1916 

* Uncle Sam "I Want You !"
* James Montgomery Flagg
* Iconic colored illustration


The front cover is one of the more iconic prints of the World War I era, being the famous James Montgomery Flagg print showing Uncle Sam in his "I want you!" pose. It's popularity caused it to be used in many recruiting posters of the era.
However this caption is: "What Are YOU Doing For Preparedness?". This same print would be repeated in the February 15, 1917 issue with the caption: "I Want You!"
This is the complete 26 page issue with the color front cover but lacking the back cover. A bit of binding residue at the spine, 10 3/4 by 13 3/4 inches, nice condition.
