LE PETIT, Alfred. [A satirical map of Corsica]
Le Grelot. La Justice en Corse. Paris: 1884. 4pp, with a wood-engraved caricature in original colour on front. Caricature 310 x 265mm. A few nicks.
A satirical map of Corsica, with Justice being cruxified on her scales by lawyers, her blindfold over her mouth. Her outline transforms the island's outline into a skull. 'The Grelot' was a Republican journal founded in 1871 by Arnold Mortier, lasting until 1903, despite many lawsuits brought against it. The magazine was in the forefront of a campaign to give satirical drawing the same liberties as writing; it was obliged to submit every cartoon to the censors for permission to publish! Alfred Le Petit (1841-1909) contributed to Le Grelot from 1872 until 1903.
