Sinn Féin. Broadside, begins: Can Ireland stand alone? Is she strong enough to set up as an independent nation? [Dublin: Sinn Fein], 1918. Oblong small 8vo (19 x 25.5 cm, 7.5" x 10").  f. $995.00
In this two-column comparison of "Ireland with the small nations of Europe that prospered in Freedom" we are shown how Ireland stacks up against Belgium, Holland, Denmark, and Switzerland with regard to landmass, population, and 1915 income from trade. Sinn Féin concludes "It is cheaper, therefore, to be free than in slavery," and that "The hour for Freedom and the Irish Republic has struck."
The broadside was published on 28 August 1918 in the lead-up to the 14 December election that started Ireland on the path to being an independent nation.
