A.K. [A German serio-comic view of the Great War]
Gedrängte Frühjarksübersicht von Europa im Jahre 1915. Misstabe bis auf weiteres 3 gegen 7. Hamburg: Lucas Gräfe, 1915. Chromolithograph. Sheet 550 x 705mm, with original title label pasted on reverse. Original folds with minor wear.
A German satire of Europe during the First Wolrd War, published in early 1915, before Italy joined the Entente against Germany., as it is shown standing, teetering in a rocking chair. Both Germany and Austria are queens, sending their troops to guard the fronts against France (depicted by Marianne on a rocking horse) and Russia (a large moujik or peasant). Britain sits on a large sack of money. Turkey has padlocked the Dardanelles. The style of the illustrations and rhymes are more in the style of children's books that most maps of this genre. The most bloodthirsty vignette is the portrait of Paul von Hindenburg chopping off the right hand of the moujik with an axe, a reference to his victory at the Battle of Tannenberg. SOUCACOS: p.222-3.
