120 ink caricatures.
Vienna, : 1874-6 : 2 vols., 8vo (190 í- 115 mm), one or two ink caricatures to each page (rectos only), minute ink captions, a few pencil additions at end, numerous blanks at the end of the second volume, loosely inserted table of contents. Cloth backed notebooks (one with label of stationer M. Trentsensky, Vienna), slightly rubbed. Each volume inscribed ?Hugo Hoegel?. : Hugo Hoegel (1854?1921) was a Viennese law student in the 1870s, later becoming a noted legal scholar. These notebooks contain his accomplished (and often quite funny) caricatures of notable figures of the day, mainly European royalty and Austrian politicians, but including Richard Wagner, Queen Victoria and tenor Heinrich Sontheim. The captions suggest that they were adapted from illustrations in contemporary journals, but their confident execution suggest that they are not mere copies.
