Creator (LCNAF)
  • Klenck, Paul
Description This is a political caricature related to the Franco-Prussian War of 1870 or the Paris Commune of 1871. Within illus.: Le Salut Public. Caption: "Gustave Maroteau était un tout jeune homme qui débuta dans le journalisme en 1869, par de petit libelles republicains qu'il publiait à un sou. Dans ces feuilles il entreprit une energique et redoutable campagne contre l'Empire et il fut payé de son audace par le plus grand succés. Plus tard, le lendemain du 18 Mars 1871, il fonda la Montagne et puis le Salut Publie où des articles extrêmes et violents et surtout des attaques contre le haut Clergé lui valurent cette condamnation sans précédents dans les annales de nos discordes civiles: La Peine de Mort pour Delit de Presse. L'histoire et la postérité reviendront sur le talent viril de ce jeune montagnard, petit fils de l'Aïeule de nos Révolutions." Caption (English translation): "Gustave Maroteau was a young man who started in journalism in 1869, with small republican pamphlets that he published for a penny. In those pages he undertook an energetic and formidable campaign against the Empire and was paid for his audacity with the greatest success. Later, the days after March 18, 1871, he founded La Montagne, and then Le Salut Public where especially extreme and violent articles against the higher clergy earned him an unprecedented condemnation in the annals of our civil discord: The Death Penalty for a Press Crime. History and posterity will will come to know the talent of this virile young mountaineer, grandson of the Grandmother of our Revolutions."
