A rare facsimile copy of the almost unobtainable 1911 French edition of this wonderful book with aviation cartoons. 45 colorplates. Joaquín Xaudaró y Echau (1872 - 1933) was a Spanish cartoonist, illustrator, and caricaturist. His humorous depictions of the new technologies of his time - he published a volume of cartoons called 'The Perils of Flight ('Les péripéties de l'aviation', Garnier Frères, Paris, 1911) - serve as an important link between the worlds of nineteenth-century illustration and twentieth-century cartooning. Xaudaró's observations on contemporary culture and technology, as well as his gentle but insightful sense of humor, are apparent in such cartoons as 'El telégrafo sin hilos', 'Un retrato futurista', 'El auto que pasa', 'Despertar en Biarritz', 'El leopardo inglés en Spyon-Kop'. 48 pag. Size: 30,5cmx22,5cm. Buchnummer des Verkäufers 030026
