Punch Historical Archive; 1841-1992 (Gale)

Connect to database

Description During its 150-year history, Punch, the iconic British magazine of humor and satire, published some of the finest comic writers in the English language--from W.M. Thackeray to P.G. Wodehouse. Its celebrated cartoons satirized politics, society, and sports. The Punch Historical Archive, 1841-1992 includes the complete run of the weekly magazine, as well as its annual Almanack, seasonal issues, and indexes. The archive also correlates the previously anonymous articles and those written under pseudonyms with the private ledgers of contributors kept by the Punch editors, in many cases revealing for the first time the true identity of the authors.
