Series IV. Printed images, posters, maps and original artwork, 1880-1967 122 items
Series IV. is comprised mainly of posters and other items intended for display, all of which relate in some way to the French colonies in Africa and Asia, their conquest and domination, products, and inhabitants.

Cross-references have been provided in order to guide the researcher to additional images of interest.
