Content Description

This collection contains a private collection of approximately a hundred cartoons and caricatures all related to humorous graphic propaganda of World War I. Most are in German but some in Hungarian. Many are colored and probably cut from magazines, but there are privately printed carbon copies too. Included in the front few pages is a folded poster titled "Humorist. Darstellung der Wappen unserer Feinde 1914" and shows a humorous interpretation of Allied nations coats-of-arm or heraldic shields. These cartoons are mounted on album card leaves. Sixty-two pages with Szauer's collection stamp on title page.
