This 8 page brochure tells of the Bond-Certificate Campaign that was used to help finance the elected government of the Republic of Ireland. Eamon de Valera, the president of the first Dáil, the Irish revolutionary parliament, issued these bonds in 1920 during the Anglo–Irish War—the Irish war of independence. De Valera, a leader of the 1916 Easter Rising, had been born in New York, but raised in Ireland. In 1919, after escaping from a British prison, he returned to the United States to raise funds and demand recognition of Irish independence. During his American tour, de Valera raised over five million dollars through the sale of republican bonds.

This items tells about the bonds and what they would be used for. It also has a centerfold map that shows the results of the General Election, Dec. 1918.

This little brochure measures 5 1/4" x 8 1/4". It is in very good condition but yellowed from age. It is a wonderful bit of historical ephemera.
