THE POLITICAL LITHOGRAPHY IN THE STRUGGLE OF THE PARIS COMMUNE

I picked this up in a used book store in Germany a couple of years ago. It seems like political cartoons concerning the Paris Commune, 1871. According to Wikipedia,The Paris Commune was government that briefly ruled Paris and is thought to be the first “assumption of power by the working class during the industrial revolution”. The book was published by Verlag Gaehme Henke in 1976. I did a google translation for the title so it might not be completely right (I just changed the title as per a comment, thanks)  [click on image to enlarge]

    I’d translate that to “The political litography in the struggle of the Paris commune”.

    I don’t get it. Are these from The New Yorker?

      No … he lifted the pics from a Highlights for Children magazine he stole from a dentist’s waiting room.
