The Wasp (also known as The Illustrated Wasp), The San Francisco Illustrated Wasp, The Wasp News-Letter and the San Francisco News-Letter Wasp) was "an American satirical magazine" published from 1876 to 1941. Fabulous color lithographs. This issue devotes a significant amount of space to the political arena, both in articles, lists of candidates, and cartoons. Very Good. Item #84692

"The Wasp was founded as a weekly satire magazine in San Francisco in 1876 by the Bohemian expatriate Francis Korbel and his two brothers, who also founded the Korbel Champagne Cellars.[1][2] The first issue was published on August 5, 1876.[3] The lead artist until 1883 was George Frederick Keller.[2] The magazine was somewhat unusual at the time, owing to the Korbels' expertise in mass-producing color lithographs in print, a process they had come to master in their first business, the manufacture of labeled cigar boxes..."
