COUP DE POING DANS L'AFFAIRE: DESSINS ROUGE. No 1., (Association des Ecrivains et Artistes Revolutionaires).
7 (Association des Ecrivains et Artistes Revolutionaires). COUP DE POING DANS L'AFFAIRE: DESSINS ROUGE. No 1.
Paris: Association des Ecrivains et des Artistes Revolutionaires, [1934]. [1934]. Fair 
- Quarto, 12-1/2 inches high by 9-3/4 inches wide. Softcover, reddish orange wrappers printed in black & white with a full page caricature by Yvette Guilbert on the back cover. The soiled and heavily chipped covers are detached. There are several tears and small pieces out from the edges of the covers. Several tears to the bottom edge of the front cover have been reinforced with archival linen tape from the verso. 20 pages, including the covers, with textual and full-page illustrations by the French caricaturists of the period, including contributions by Antoni, Deupe, Gosse, Andres, Jimmy Oawks, Enri, Schmied, Antek, Pogolotti, Sagette, Yvette Guilbert. The text includes a poem by Jacques Moulin "Dedie a Henri Willemin", the satirical "Petit cours de Medecine pratique" by Le Bon Docteur, "Petites explications pour ceux qui n'auraient par compris les evenements" by Jimmy Oawks, and numerous biting captions serving as titles to the illustrations. The pages are darkened with short tears and chips to the edges. A complete but fragile issue, well worth restoring due to its rarity.

Biting political satire about the Stavisky Affair distributed by the left wing Association des Ecrivains et des Artistes Revolutionaires.

Founded in March 1932 the Association was a section of the International Union of Revolutionary Writers, which the Comintern had founded a couple of years earlier. The AEAR was a French association founded by communist and communist sympathizing writers in opposition to war and fascism. Henri Cartier Bresson, Luis Bunuel, Max Ernst, Andre Gide, and Man Ray were, for a time, among the notable members of the association.

A 1934 financial scandal, The Stavisky Affair was generated by the actions and dealings of the embezzler Alexandre Stavisky (1888-1934). Politicians and investors were swept up in Stavisky's schemes. He sold hundreds of millions of francs worth of false bonds on the city of Bayonne's municipal pawnshops. First charged with fraud in 1927, his trial was postponed over and over again as Stavinsky, known as "Le Beau Sasha", was granted bail 19 times. In the interim, one judge was found decapitated and the affair culminated with Stavisky's "suicide", though speculation persisted that the police killed him. As suggested by "Le Canard enchaine", if it was indeed suicide Stavisky must have had "a long arm". Right wing accusations that the police had killed Stavisky to protect influential people led to the resignation of French premier Camille Chautemps. His successor Daladier, from the Radical-Socialist Party, immediately fired the right-wing Paris Police prefect Jean Chiappe as well as the director of the Comedie Francaise. The new Interior minister, Eugene Frot, announced that demonstrators would be shot. The events led to an attempted right-wing putsch fomented by Action Francaise, the Croix-de-Feu, the Mouvement Franciste and a collection of anti-Semitic, monarchist and fascist groups. The riots resulted in 14 deaths at the hands of the police. Daladier was himself forced to resign and his successor, the conservative Gaston Doumergue formed a coalition cabinet. The affair inspired the 1937 Hollywood movie "Stolen Holiday" starring Claude Rains, and the later 1974 Alain Resnais film "Stavisky" starring Jean-Paul Belmondo.
