Here are more cartoons from Comic Art in America by Stephen Becker. It's a book about the history up to that point (1959). I've been posting excerpts every Thursday, the previous installment is ""here where there's a hyperlink to the one before it which has the one before that and so on and so on an so forth.
The chapter before this, called Added Attractions just featured stills and model sheets from animated films so I won't bother with that. This is the next chapter, A Century of Magazines: From Corny Almanacks to The New Yorker. As the captions on the cartoons say:
”Dicky Colwell”, a drawing by JAMES ARKIN in 1808, when it was still practicable to quote Othello.
ALEXANDER ANDERSON's most famous cartoon, “Ograbme”, a sharp comment on the Embargo of 1813.
WILLIAM CHARLES, drawn in 1818.
CHIP BELLEW gag, which is practically a strip. BELLEW loved to draw dogs.
C. J. TAYLOR's he-she cartoons, done about 1907. From Judge
HY MAYER from Puck, in about 1910.
Continuing with the captions:
There's no caption here. The cartoon is by T. S. Sullivant. Don't know the source or the year.
The primitive pun, by A.S. DAGGY, who was a popular cartoonist of the turn of the century. From Judge.
ZIM (EUGENE ZIMMERMAN) drew this in 1908. After the first world war the Irishman ceased to be a victim of cartoonists, possibly because he was better assimilated. From Judge.
JAMES THURBER in 1937, this and the rest (except for one) are from The New Yorker.
