Free State Freaks January 31, 2015

Posted by WorldbyStorm in Culture, Irish Politics.

Thanks to Garibaldy for pointing to these anti-Free State caricatures and cartoons!

Facsimilie copies of seven sheets of hand-drawn caricatures, each one featuring a grotesque satirical portrait of a figure from the Free State Government.
Abstract: The Samuels Collection consists of printed ephemera of the 1916 Rebellion, World War I, the War of Independence and the Civil War. It was gathered in part by the Royal Irish Constabulary, and collected by Arthur Warren Samuels, Solicitor General for Ireland (1917-1918) and Attorney General (1918-1919). It was presented to the Library in the 1960’s.
