New York: G.P. Putnam's Sons, 1941. Arthur Szyk (1894-1951), a Polish Jew (later American citizen) became one of the most renowned illustrators of the Twentieth Century. A superior draftsman, his work often resembles that of a Medieval miniaturist - as in his version of the Haggadah, published in 1940. The rise of fascism had long alarmed him, and one year later came this book of "cartoons" mocking the Axis through brilliant caricature. This is a Near Fine copy of the First Edition. Foreward by J.J. Horowitz; Introduction by Roger W. Straus, Jr. Light-olive cloth binding with black titling on the front cover. Clean text; unpaginated (41).Thirty black-and-white illustrations; eight more, and the Title Page, are in colour. Previous-owner signature on the FFEP, else a Fine copy, the best Quercus has seen.
