    Description

    Soviet Propaganda (c. 1959). Russian Poster (17" X 35") "We Plowed Virgin Territory."
    The late 1950s were a time of numerous firsts for the Soviet Union as they led mankind's charge past our atmosphere, starting with 1957's launch of the monumental Sputnik I and the first launch of an animal into space with the dog Laika on Sputnik II. Then, 1959 saw the success of the Luna 1 probe, which claims the title of the first object to ever leave Earth's orbit and achieve telemetry, Luna 2's impact on the moon, and then the first ever image of the moon's far side from Luna 3. This cosmonaut has plenty to be proud of in this triumphant piece of propaganda. It has fold wear with small tears, edge wear, two vertical tears in the center fold, extra diagonal folds, and some light foxing. There is archival tape on the verso at the folds and some paper loss in the lower border. Folded, Fine/Very Fine.
