Pre-WW I Europe: Cartoons Magazine Centennial, November 1912

Cartoons Magazine is primarily known today, for its publication of powerful images in cartoons reprinted from all sides during World War I, with the quality of its content in a constant decline after that war. Right now, in our Centennial coverage, we’re entering a lull period in the magazine, with the 1912 Election finished, and the War approximately a year-and-a-half away.

However, no wars truly begin as a complete surprise. There are often plenty of conflict, and warning signs of what is to come, in the years leading up. Today’s scans all come from the November 1912 issue of Cartoons Magazine.

Click on the above & below pictures, to view the cartoons in detail, and read their captions.

Above, Turkey (Ottoman Empire) and the Balkans, by Charles Lewis Bartholomew (“Bart”), Plasche, Robert Satterfield, Masterson, and Ole May.

Beneath, a British cartoon on demands for Irish Independence.

Above, by Viennese (Austrian) cartoonist Wilke, the Roman God of War and the Greek Muse of History, discuss the Europe’s constant flare-ups.

Beneath, by Brandt, published in the German cartoon periodical Kladderadatsch, a view of France getting into a mess in Morocco.

Above Leonard Raven-Hill in Britain’s Punch magazine, on the Balkans again (within which would come the event regarded as pulling the trigger for World War I).

Below, an Italian cartoon on events occuring in the Balkans.
