Punch

The contents of these books are almost incomprehensible to me, being full of references to very old political scandals and outrageously distasteful racist or classist 'humour' (example: joke about a lady's decision to employ a "nigger" servant owing to her being recently widowed - "the black suits her").

 

Still, I keep them for their decorative quality, and they are full of charming illustrations.
