Book cover

"Punch, or the London Charivari, Volume 152, January 10, 1917" is a fascinating collection of satirical cartoons and humorous articles from early 20th century England. The wit and cleverness displayed in the writing is impressive, poking fun at the society and politics of the time with a sharp eye and a quick tongue.

While some of the references may be lost on modern readers, the overall spirit of the publication still shines through, making it an enjoyable read for anyone with an interest in history or humor.
