Women's Suffrage Memorabilia

Prior to the appearance of the magazines "Puck," "Judge" and "the Wasp" with their color chromolithographed covers and centerfolds, political and social satire was often taken up by newspapers either as part of their regular run or as special issues. This particular issue mocks women's rights in general and Victoria Woodhull's candidacy in particular. This issue of the paper shows some signs of decay, both in terms of browning and splitting along the folds. Surprisingly many early papers are in better shape today than last year's newspapers, primarily because they were printed on less acidic paper.
