Published to accompany the exhibition Vive Les Satiristes! French Caricature During the Reign of Louis Philipp, 1830-1848, held at the Grolier Club, March 22 through May 27, 2017. Collector's Statement, Introduction, and "The Editor/Publisher and His Artists" by Josephine Lea Iselin, followed by an illustrated checklist of the collection. A fascinating overview of the Golden Age of social and political satire in 19th-century France, focusing on the role of controversial and wildly popular journals such as La Caricature and Le Charivari, and the great illustrators - Daumier, Grandville, and others - who captured in these pages the foibles of those around them with unmatched humor, skill, and style.
