Creator (Local)
  • Anonymous
Description This is a political caricature related to the Franco-Prussian War of 1870 or the Paris Commune of 1871. Within illus.: Sedan Plebiscite; 1852 Power 1870. Bernasconi, Editor, cours de Brosses, 12, Lyon. Imp. Blein, r. Montesquieu, 45, Lyon.
Caption Caption: English translation: "By hoisting himself up on the shoulders of Guillaume, which makes him a leg taller, the former Emperor again tries to climb this greasy pole, called POWER, planted in 1852, and poorly supported in 1870 by the PLECBISCITE. But the east wind blows strongly; it overturns the walls of Sedan and Strasbourg, and bends the mast, which breaks, causing the eagle with the heir apparent [to fall]."
Inscription By hoisting himself up on the shoulders of Guillaume, which makes him a leg taller, the former Emperor again tries to climb this greasy pole, called POWER, planted in 1852, and poorly supported in 1870 by the PLECBISCITE. But the east wind blows strongly; it overturns the walls of Sedan and Strasbourg, and bends the mast, which breaks, causing the eagle with the heir apparent [to fall].
