PBT. SEMANARIO INFANTIL ILUSTRADO. AÑO 4, NO. 113. (Para niños de 6 a 80 años)
Pellicer, Eustaquio (ed.).

Argentina: Eustaquio Pellicer, 1907. First printing 150 p., photos, ilus., wrps., chipping to spine wrap-around Good Staplebound Issue number 113 from the original PBT series, a satirical political magazine founded in 1904. Although it claimed to be a weekly for children, it merely appropriated many of the styles that were typical of juvenile literature of the time. Numerous advertisements seem to poke fun at the lifestyles and opulent tastes of the wealthy, as well as ideas about femeninity and society at large. One advertisement for "Parisian Cigars" claims that they are the preferred choice for politicians and depicts heavyset men in tophats and coat tails. Such fake ads live on to this day in journals such as the "Baffler" and "Adbusters." Numerous articles discuss banking, domesticity, the weight of the Earth, recent inventions and cooking (Item ID: 163818)
