Puck's Library - "Animiles".
Published July, 1897, New York by Keppler & Schwarzman for Puck.
XX pages. Text in English. Profusely illustrated throughout with many cartoon style drawings by various artists, including F.M. Howarth (racist cartoons relating to Africa).
Illustrated pictorial color lithographed paper wrappers, b&w contents
Like most periodicals of this era, shows signs of age and handling. Light soiling, numerous mostly short edge tears throughout. Still, overall, entirely acceptable, especially given the scarcity factor of all Puck magazines of the 19th century..
Text block remains overall clean, and displays a pleasing age patina.
In our opinion, the age flaws are easy to overlook or forgive.
