Le Chancre qui a rongé la France [The Canker that has consumed France (cover title)]

Paris, Institut d'Etudes des Questions Juives, [circa 1942].

A double-sided six-panel leporello (112 × 555 mm), folding down to approximately 112 × 91 mm, with a captioned illustration on each of the 12 panels.

Unbound as issued; printed on newsprint (now very lightly tanned); essentially a fine copy.

A virulently antisemitic leaflet, with the cover artwork credited to Apis (the pseudonym of the French illustrator Jean Chaperon, 1887-1969), and it would appear that he was responsible for the entire content. The message is loud and clear from the first page, but the last sentence leaves nothing in doubt: 'Adherez pour une liquidation definitive des questions juives'. A strident anti-Bolshevic, antisemitic, pro-fascist leaflet in uniform format also appeared under his name in 1942.
