Sections from a book of cartoons from Punch, a British magazine of humor and satire from 1841-2002. The magazine introduced the term cartoon and was especially known for its irreverent treatment of public figures. Benjamin Disraeli is, still, the only Jewish Prime Minister of Great Britain. He was head of the Conservative Party and served as PM in 1868 and from 1874-1880. This publication is one of more than 900 items in the Katz Ehrenthal Collection of antisemitic visual materials.
