Well, I'd say it could date as far back as the '30s or as new as the '60s. I'm thinking 1940s or 1950s, though.
I could not find information on the artist E. Donovan, save for someone dead long before the last century.
I could not find information on when this poster was produced, other than a seller saying 1940s-1960s and from the U.S. city of Chicago, Illinois. His had the city's name on it, though.
This poster also has the American Insurance Association on it.
Yes, it is a poster, not a book-page. The back is devoid of anything. Pin-holes in top. Found in vintage frame at charity shop today for a good, low sum.
An intense litho for so simple a theme (crystal ball and dark, foreboding eyes of a masculine fireman leaned forward in action). Dark and with saturated colours. Does not floress (spelling?) under U.V. light.
I will likely display this one, rather than archive it.
