French Satirical Journal - Only Held by the BNF

Thermidor: hebdomadaire illustrée [Thermidor: an illustrated weekly], nos. 1-160 (all published).

Lyon: Henri Rojeas, 1901-1904. Folio (50 × 34 cm). Contemporary half calf with gilt-stamped title to spine; 2 leaves (4 pp.) per issue. Boards rubbed and scuffed, with some wear to leather spine; the first two issues with old creases and some fraying to edges; occasional light stains; overall about very good.

Complete run of the very scarce satirical journal published in Lyon from June 22, 1901 until July 9, 1904. Nearly every first page with a large-format black-and-white caricature, and numerous additional drawings and caricatures throughout. The authors appear to have used pseudonyms, such as PSST, Un qui paie, et cetera). We were unable to locate further information on the editor, Henri Rojeas, of Lyon, a journalist and publisher who died in 1908.

As of January 2021, KVK and OCLC only show the holding at the BNF.
