Album of Nine Original Pen-and-Ink Cartoons Depicting Life at a Vichy France Prison Camp for Political Prisoners

by Cascal (?)

Sisteron, France. Wraps. Very Good. Early 1940s. 8vo. 22 by 17 cm.

Album of Caricatures and Photos of an Austro-Hungarian Army Unit Stationed in Northern Italy, circa early 1860s.

Full Morocco. Very Good. Fabulous collection of army caricatures, as well as actual photos of many of the soldiers and officers.

Even with the captions mostly unreadable by us written as they are in an indecipherable Suettelin Schrift, the humor and narrative generally comes through very clearly. The artwork is mostly focused on the soldiers' lifestyle -- hunting, womanizing and wooing, drinking... Read more
