JUDGE magazine, New York, March 9, 1889
* Color political prints
Judge magazine was founded in 1881 by a group of artists, headed by James Albert Wales, who left the staff of the popular comic weekly Puck. The magazine featured bold satire and good political drawing with chromolithographic front and back covers and center spread.
After a strong start, the magazine found itself struggling to compete with its very similar rival Puck. Puck finally expired in 1918, while Judge continued to thrive into the 1930's and beyond.
The color prints are very desired for their displayability. This issue has as its political cartoons:
front page: "For Another Twenty Years."
This issue has no color centerfold.
back page: "The Evacuation of Washington by the English."
Complete in 16 pages, 13 1/4 by 10 1/4 inches, tape at the spine, a 1 inch tear at the sine margin, light foxing.
