[POLITICIAL CARTOONS] The Judge, September 1, 1883, Cartoon
"Is This The Future Of The Wall Street Kings?" Colorful and unusual, quite direct!
13" x 20" Split at center fold; otherwise very good condition.
JUDGE was a weekly satirical magazine published in the United States from 1881 to 1947. It was launched by artists who had seceded from its rival Puck. The founders included cartoonist James Albert Wales, dime novels publisher Frank Tousey and author George H. Jessop.
Harold Ross was an editor of JUDGE between April 5 and August 2, 1924. He used the experience on the magazine to start his own in 1925, The New Yorker.
The success of The New Yorker, as well as the Great Depression, put pressure on JUDGE. It became a monthly in 1932 and ceased circulation in 1947.
