PUCK, New York, April 10, 1889 Puck was America's first successful humor magazine of colorful cartoon caricatures and political satire, publishing from 1871 until 1918. It was also the first to successfully adopt full color lithography printing for a weekly publication. The color prints are very desired for their displayability. This issue has as its political cartoons:
front page: "United In Grief."
