I absolutely love this, a recent pick-up. It is a copy of J’ai Vu (I Saw) magazine from just after rebellion in Dublin, dated May sixth. Of course at that point in time executions were still taking place.
‘J’ai Vu’ (‘I Saw’ or ‘I Was an Eyewitness’) was somewhat similar to ‘Le Miroir’. It consisted mainly of war-related photos with a few articles. The first weekly issue appeared in November 1914, when it became obvious the war would not be over with for some time to come yet. Between August and October of 1914, publication of many French magazines was interrupted by the outbreak of war. Around the same time, new magazines, publishing almost exclusively war news started to appear.
The frontpage shows General Maxwell who supressed the rebellon in Ireland. Notice the ‘Sinn Féiner’ shown (!), and the reference to Sir. Roger Casement is interesting. Enjoy.
