In this reprinted edition of Sir David Low's works, Lawrence Streicher has added an introduction, epilogue, and partial bibliography of Low's collected works. Frequent characters in Low's satirical cartoons include: Maxim Litvinov, Neville Chamberlain, Pierre Laval, Adolf Hitler, Benito Mussolini, Aristide Briand, and Joseph Stalin. Check out this item to chuckle at sharp images depicting the ineffectiveness of politics (my, how things change!), or bemoan the inevitability of civilian pain and suffering at the end of this era.

Below is a link to instructions regarding the laptops. (Don't panic - Monday - Friday, during regular business hours, staff will be on hand to assist with this procedure.)
