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.
