Both items in good condition, on aged high-acidity paper. The handbill is printed on one side of a piece of 30.5 x 19.5 cm. paper. The meeting is said to have been 'Presided over by Admiral The Lord Beresford, and there is a list of fifteen individuals by whom the resolutions were supported, beginning with 'J. Havelock Wilson, C.B.E., (President of the National Sailors' and Firemen's Union)' and 'Commander HOUGHTON, R.N.R. (Marine Service Associatio - Masters and Officers - Liverpool)'. The reader is urged to join the League in order to 'punish the Germans for their crimes against civilians on land and sea', with six reasons given for doing so, beginning with 'BECAUSE no Government can teach the Huns the same lesson that the people can'. Two resolutions adopted at the formation of the League are also given in small print. The subscription slip is printed in blue, and states that the League has 'for its objects the Boycott of the Germans and German Goods at the termination of hostilities, and in recognition of the heroic services of fthe British Mercantile Seamen rendered to the Empire during the War, and to assist them in their Benevolent Institutions for the aged and infirm'. Scarce: no copy in the Imperial War Museum, or on OCLC WorldCat or COPAC. N° de ref. de la librería 13526
