VERY FINE. A BEAUTIFUL AND RARE SET OF FRENCH CARTOON COVERS, DEPICTING MANY COMMON THEMES OF THE DAY IN A SATIRICAL MANNER.
The illustrations on the covers have much in common with caricatures of the day that often appeared in newspapers or other periodicals, poking fun at politicians or other popular current events. This set of French cartoon designs was assembled one at a time by Louis Grunin over decades of collecting. It is, without question, impossible to duplicate.
