Spectacular promotional travel poster of Madagascar, design by Maurice Tranchant in 1952 and printed by G. Raidot in Paris. In lower right a cartouche giving general information about the population and the principal agricultural productions of the island. Above the cartouche a portrait of Joseph Simon Gallieni (24 April 1849 27 May 1916) who was a French soldier, active for most of his career as a military commander and administrator in the French colonies.
