New York. Judge. 1905.
TWO color lithographic cartoons from March 25 and April 15, 1905 issues of Judge magazine (COVERS ONLY), sheet sizes 13 1/2 x 10 inches. Light toning to edges, light staining to margins of March 25 cartoon "The Death-Dealer" particularly at upper left, multiple short tears, two longer tears (1 inch) to lower edge of "The Death-Dealer" just entering image area; small chip to right margin of same; illustrations bright and would display well. Front cover illustrations from the satirical magazine Judge. "The Death-Dealer" does not refer to the then-unknown cancerous effects of cigarette smoking; instead the cartoon criticizes the monopolizing American Tobacco Company (known as the “Tobacco Trust”) for ruining homes, small dealers, and cigar retailers, and for inspiring crime. "The Great American Tobacco Hog" shows the American Tobacco Company hogging all the profits and dividends of the trade while starving out small dealers. The cartoon copyrights are 1904; text and images on verso. Item #56627
