Grosz has been hailed as "the most powerful political satirist since Goya and Daumier." " It was inevitable that , sooner or later, Grosz would be hounded out of a Germany in which the democracy for which he was struggling was steadily being extinguished." Grosz left Germany in 1932, became an American citizen and spent the rest of his life in the United States. Near Fine in an illustrated dust jacket that is tatterred and Fair only. This is scarce. Illustrated with 16 color plates and 84 black-and-white plates. White linen-covered boards. A grey colored drawing, apparently of Grosz, on the front cover and title on the spine. This is a first printing of a facsimile edition of the 1923 original edition which has long since become a collector's item. Bookseller Inventory #
