A complete run in 25 issues (each issue approx. 16 pp.) of the humorous French satirical journal meant to rekindle the spirit of L'Assiette au Beurre, the early twentieth-century political and satirical magazine, edited by Lucien Grand-Jouan, with each issue devoted to the work of a single illustrator or cartoonist and a single topic, with each issue having a separate subtitle. Profusely illustrated with brightly-colored and black-and-white illustrations, very little text throughout. Small folio. Orig. colorful illustrated wrpps. Some very minor small tears and soiling. Paris 1971-1976. Together with a kiosk poster for issue no. 14.
Satirix was seized by the Ministry of the Interior in 1973 after the publication of issue no. 23 which contained caricatures of various political figures including Nixon, Pompidou, and Pope Paul VI. Publication was paused for two years while the trial against the magazine took place. Even though Grand-Jouan won the battle in court, he was not able to successfully start publication back up again, and the journal's run ended two issues later, with no. 25. The artists whose work is featured in each issue are as follows: Jean Sennep (two issues), Jean Effel, Albert Dubout (two issues), Siné, Barbe, Moisan, Claude Serre (two issues), François Solo (two issues), Vazquez de Sola (two issues), Laville, Fernando Puig Rosado, Cardon, Tetsu, Michel Longuet, Pino Zac (two issues), Albert Mignard, César, Vitou, and Kaher.
