San Francisco: The Book Club of California, 1967. First Edition, First Printing. Hardcover. A Very Good + to Near Fine copy of the first edition, first printing in book form of Cartoons earlier published in "The Wasp" (some rubbing to the spine ends and leading board corners). The Wasp was an illustrated weekly magazine devoted to social and political satire which was published from 1876 to well after the turn of the twentieth century. It was founded by the Korbel brothers who had immigrated from Czechoslovakia. After a period of time spent working as skilled mechanics, they pooled their resources and founded a cigar box factory and becoming one of the earliest firms to use redwood to produce cigar boxes. To further their business, they bought a half-interest in a redwood country sawmill and thereafter bought out their business partner(s), becoming full owners of the sawmill and added nearby land. After the wood was exhausted, they planted grapevines amongst the stubs and thus was born the Korbel Winery which stayed in the family until 1954 and remains in operation. This volume, of which only 450 copies were produced, contains many reproductions of colored lithographs.
