“The see-saw nations–The Anglo-Saxons balance of power,” Victor Gillam, Judge, 9 April 1898
“The White Man’s Burden (Apologies to Kipling),” Victor Gillam, Judge, 1899. (As seen in The Forbidden Book: The Philippine-American War in Cartoons, courtesy of AL.)

“Russia: ‘How I hate that song!'” Edwin Marcus, c. 1950s.
