Three idiosyncratic manuscript journals of deeply cynical leftist political commentary, written by an unidentified Irish-American resident of Pittsburgh, ca. 1922-1932. The journals treat local, national, and international affairs, contemporaneous and historical: there is much on World War I, Ireland, and American politics generally. The volumes are illustrated with some 750 drawings, many of them portraits.
A homemade pamphlet with eight pages of elaborate pencil illustrations and accompanying verse, telling a moralizing tale of a young man's search for a new pair of suspenders.
