    Stagnation - Prosperity. This 16-page pamphlet features a selection of political cartoons/illustrations published in Harper's and Leslie's Weekly in 1893-1894 editorializing the failure of policies under the second Grover Cleveland administration (though Cleveland's name is never explicitly mentioned). Published by Moses King of New York in 1904, it may have been distributed in an effort to strengthen President Theodore Roosevelt's second term campaign. An interesting slice of the societal unrest at the time, the cartoons and accompanying text depict the plight of the unemployed and hungry, financial panic in the Stock Exchange, strikes and work stoppage across the country, and police violence against unemployed rioters, among other things. 7-1/2" x 5", 16 pages, saddle-stitched, B&W with orange.
