Including nearly 4200 illustrations, Caricatures and Cartoons, 1890-1905: A History of the World vividly describes the changes of the world around the turn of the century.
Originally selected by the editor of The Review of Reviews, a monthly magazine published since 1889 in the UK and US, which carried the summery of news and reports collected from the periodicals over the world, the cartoons appeared in various sections of the magazine and its appendices.
