I just love the style of work that was being featured back then and this series of books seems to capture the best of it. Look at the ad for these ultra strong men’s underwear being tested with a spear .. who’d have thought of it ! : )

The only shame is that a large percentage of the books are in black and white, but they still manage to capture the essence of the times better than many illustration books from this time that I’ve seen.
