Three color political prints...
Item # 593510
December 27, 1890
JUDGE magazine, New York, Dec. 27, 1890
* 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 double-page centerfold in this issue is tipped-in which makes it very nice for display, meaning no binding holes or stapes which are more typically found.
The color prints are very desired for their displayability. This issue has as its political cartoons:
front page: "Democracy's New Toy."
double-page centerfold: "Judge's Christmas Gift to Little Sam and Miss Columbia." obviously has a Christmas theme.
back page: "A Christmas Medley."
Complete in 16 pages, 13 1/4 by 10 1/4 inches, some foxing at the front page margins, nice condition.
