Judge; vol. 25 no. 615 July 29, 1893

New York: The Judge Publishing Company, 1893. Pp.49-64, [16]p. staplebound 13.5 x 10.25 inch self-wraps, three color plates and numerous b&w cartoons. Crimping and splitting along spinefold, long ago folded across--now flattened, but weakened and begun to tear in places; general handling signs and edgewear.

Doublespread is a particularly successful parody of "The Brownies" books, who are visiting the Columbian World's Fair (shown with its halls, flags, ferris wheel, camels, costumes and a canal with gondola). There are several dozen brownies and some forty of them have faces of contemporary politicians, most labelled; elaborate artwork is credited to staff artists Gillam and Hamilton both. Cover cartoon depicts Cleveland as Babylonian honcho in the shadow of the Tower of Babel (by Gillam);, and back wraps is mockery of Southern white male foolishness ("They are all colonels in Georgia").
