While in Los Angeles a couple weeks ago I found myself in an old large used bookstore which had quite a few books of cartoons . . as I rummaged through the hundreds of books I spotted this classic. Many have called him ( Daumier ) the first cartoonist but absolutely the first caricaturist. For a paltry 20 bucks, I added this gem to my collection.
The 122 page Hardback book ( 9 1/2 x 12 1/2 ) was published by Leon Amiel Publisher, Inc., New York, and does not have a date. The ISBN # 0-8148-0738-0 is listed.
Well known for the expression he displays in the hands of his characters . . . this book is definately a textbook in capturing moods and personalities of the various players in his scenes.
