"The ambition" - The French 'L'Assiette au Beurre visions' - a large antisemitic cartoon


The L'Assiette issue in Beurre visions PAR CAMARA. France, September 1903 (Issue 127). On each page is a large cartoon depicted with a derogatory word at the bottom. On the cover of the issue is a cartoon of a Jew embracing the earth with his blood-dripping arms, and the description: "L'AMBITION - the ambition".


The cartoon in which the Jew appears as a threat to take over the world appeared on various advertising platforms in the 19th century and in the first decades of the 20th century. In 1901, the German 'Kikrikiki' presented a mythological monster in the form of a Jew embracing the earth in his arms. The Nazi campaigners used it to spread Jewish hatred, and the attempt to portray the Jew as threatening to take over the world was repeatedly presented in the Nazi der Sturmer in the form of a Jew wrapping the earth in his arms.

Complete sheet. Each page has a large cartoon over an entire page. good condition.
