With time on our hands during the Coronavirus lockdown, we are reviewing the prices of some of our older stock and adjusting prices of books to ensure that they are the most attractive offering in the marketplace, as it is a reality of the antiquarian market for books that less expensive and mid-level material the trend has been inexorably downward, to the chagrin of booksellers and to the benefit of collectors. Consequently, we have slashed prices anywhere between 20 percent and 60 percent of these books we have had listed for five years or more. So we hope that anyone visiting the site might find something that might have become overpriced but now legitimately qualifies as a bargain.

Seller ID 004214
The entire 1921 year run of this left-leaning humor weekly, or 51 issues, bound in cloth. The supplement to the Volkszeitung or Tageblatt was issued from 1872 to 1933, when the Jewish owned publication was terminated. 4to, 30.5 by 22.5 cm. Each issue is four pages, with generally one color (red, green, blue, etc.), occasionally two colors, enriching the black and white illustrations on the front and rear of each issue. The cover features one large illustration, with the back sometimes a single large illustration, sometimes several cells of a cartoon. Plenty of caricatures, cartoons and humorous drawings within as well. The publication was printed on highly acidic newspaper stock and so the pages are heavily toned. Otherwise clean. Soiling to the cloth cover, which remains attractive nonetheless.
