Punch was a British magazine of humor and satire established in 1841. It quickly it rose to pre-eminence as a widely-read weekly that blended social commentary, with humor and wit. Punch appealed to reform-minded Victorian British middle-class sentiment, without espousing revolutionary spirit or radicalism. For example, the magazine's support for the repeal of the corn-laws and general support for the aims of the Chartists. The magazine was thickly populated by the political cartoons of John Tenniel and other artists. Punch's satirized the evolving political situation of 19th century Europe and relayed moderate British sentiments on the dangers of Prussian autocracy, performance in the Crimean War, Italian nationalism (Garibaldi), colonial affairs, etc. Of particular interest to American readers is Punch's commentary and cartoons of United States policy during the civil war. Punch shows a decidedly negative view of northern international assertiveness in their naval blockade and threats to Canada. Additionally, the emancipation proclamation, the role of blacks, and President Lincoln's policies are caricatured. N° de ref. de la librería 1509160086
