Three underground Hebrew broadsides issued by the Haganah:

"To Institutions and Individuals in the Yishuv", a broadside from August 1947 calling to take caution when writing letters and pay heed to "information security": "From letters sent abroad (and often in the country), the secrets of the Yishuv are revealed to the authorities. Many write with criminal carelessness… May our secrets not be revealed to the authorities which are lying in wait for a window of opportunity to strike at us!".
34.5x24.5 cm.
3. "Announcement of the headquarters of the Haganah", a broadside from the day of the Israeli Declaration of Independence, May 14, 1948: "The enemy is threatening with invasion. Such danger must not be ignored… the armed forces are taking the necessary measures. The public must give the required assistance on its part… do not panic, do not be complacent. Preparedness and discipline".
34.5x24.5 cm.
Good overall condition. Stains and several minor creases.
