Axis in Agony! Presenting a Series of Caricatures from the Brush of Boris Artzybasheff

New York: Wickwire Spencer Steel Company, 1944. First Edition. A corporate paean to the end of the Axis powers, reproducing 23 caricatures by Boris Artzybasheff painted expressly for the Wickwire Spencer Steel Company, a prominent steel manufacturer during the first half of the 20th century. Artzybasheff cleverly incorporated a different Wickwire Spencer product into each of the caricatures, turning the volume into both a catalog for the company, as well as a propaganda tool for distribution. Scarce, with OCLC showing 10 holdings in member institutions. Oblong octavo (14cm x 19cm); black and white printed wrappers, stapled; [48pp]; chiefly illus. A few tiny stains to rear wrapper, else very Near Fine.

Price: $500.00
