 A scarce, beautiful and important illustrated satirical weekly. This issue features a chromolithographic cover with a vicious anti-black stereotype. It was published weekly until 1899, then monthly. While this title attained a wide circulation, individual issues are notably scarce and frequently lack the center spread illustration. Bound volumes are very rarely encountered.
