The American magazine Puck, whose symbol was the mischievous spirit that existed in the myths of various European nations and was depicted as a chubby child, was published for quite a short time — from 1871 to 1918, but it was this magazine that became the most famous satirical publication of the New World. Hundreds of professionally made cartoons on political themes now allow you to look at the events of the late 19th and early 20th centuries through the eyes of the Americans.
Today's compilation is devoted to the position of the Russian Empire on the international arena, as well as its internal problems, reflected on paper by American artists. At the end of the caption for each illustration, the date of the magazine's publication is given. All images are from the US Library of Congress website.
