LUSTIGE BLATTER. Berlin.
Nos 1-90. 1914-1916. 4to.
An unusually good run of this major German satirical weekly magazine
spanning the first two years of the First World War, from 12/8/14-15/4/16. The publishers numbered the “Kriegs Number” from the beginning of the War with the intention of their preservation as albums, but few sets have survived. Like Punch, in England , there was anti-allied propaganda aimed at the English with many caricatures of Churchill.
The most distinguished coloured art-work comes from the young Berlin resident caricaturist, Walter Trier, 1890-1951, who worked prolifically for the magazine throughout the War, & who, ironically, produced propaganda images for the other side during the Second World War. 90 issues, 16 pages each, illustrated throughout, including colour lithograph front& rear covers & 2 full page colour lithographs, stapled as issues in 3 original“Kriegs Album” pictorial portfolios in excellent condition. £1,400.00
