Summary:
Scrapbooks of comics depicting practical jokes, accidents, and a number of amusing and sometimes violent real-life situations. Inscription inside the front cover: "To Darling Effie from Does"(?). These comics probably satirize events of the time. The cartoons were produced in publications such as "Fliegende Blatter," "Puck," "Judge," "Life," "Pictorial Weeklies," and the "Sydney Bulletin." Several of the comics refer to Surrey and the "London Express" and appear to be English in origin. A few others have, perhaps, German and French origins.
