1887. Item #88345
WIRGMAN, Charles. THE JAPAN PUNCH Yoko-Hama 1887 February. 35.1 x 25.0 cm. As usual, containing 10 full pages of text and illustrations in b+w, reproducing in lithography the hand-writing and satirical sketches of the inimitable Mr. Wirgman. There are two pages of all text, the others are illustrated. The high-quality Japanese paper is very thin but strong and still supple. There is a bit of creasing, but overall in very good condition. Published on and off for over twenty years, THE JAPAN PUNCH is an interesting guide to the foreign community in early Meiji Japan, their interests and their intrigues.
