Harry Furniss was one of Punch's best known illustrators but he fell out with them and was fired. He went on to found his own satirical newspaper, "Lika Joko" it only lasted about six months and Furniss went on to other things but he did some outstanding work in that time. This is the bound volume of all the issues of Lika Joko. As well as illustrations by Furniss throughout there are two full page Louis Wain illustrations, reviews of The Importance of Being Earnest and An Ideal Husband as well as a number of cartoons of Wilde himself. There is also a rather amazing full page parody of Aubrey Beardsley's style which is credited to "Wierdsley Dauby". The half leather binding is in good condition with a short split in the leather above the front hinge. The pages are mainly clean and bright with just a little foxing towards the front and rear of the volume. Even individual issues of this periodical are scarce and bound volumes are rarely seen. Size: small folio. Illustrator: Harry Furniss, Louis Wain, and others. Category: Politics & Government;
