Often, L'Assiette au Beurre devoted a single issue to a specific topic. Such is the case with this December 20, 1902 issue on the topic of The Boss (Le Singe).
Adolphe Willette (1857-1926) illustrated the whole issue, which is reproduced here in its entirety.
Willette's work was also included in the special issue on the adulteration of milk. Despite a seemingly progressive attitude toward the poor, the workers and women, Willette was apparently an anti-Semite. An informative, well illustrated history of anti-Semitism, including a Willette poster he created when, it would seem, he ran for public office in 1898 as an "anti-Semitic candidate" is found at Beyond the Pale.
