Mostly black and white but there are some color plates (as noted) in the Summer number.Poems, parodies, political and social commentary about England struggling with changing alliances in Europe. Focus on Mussolini, Pierre Laval, incursions into Abyssinia, pressures on a failing/flailing League of Nations, ongoing impacts of a depressed economy. Numerous political figures of the time make one or more appearances. Also wonderful drawings and cartoons by some of the master illustrators of the day, including Bernard Partridge, L. Raven-Hill, Frank Reynolds, and Ernest H. Shepard among many others. Entertainment notes occur throughout, including stars of stage, and increasingly, screen. Women's fashions, golf and tennis, automobiles, the outspokenness of youth, the insights of the working man, and the foibles of parliamentarians also make for comment and the occasional gibe.
This volume shows some light cover wear, especially at the tips and edges and some minor spotting and rubbing. The hinge at one place in the Summer Number section is split (see scan), otherwise the interior is in very good condition. There is no writing, nothing torn or damaged pages. The hinges are intact and the spine is tight.
