Meggendorfer-Blätter – digitized
Die Meggendorfer Blätter were published in 57 editions between 1888 and 1944 as a comic of a particularly high artistic quality. As the name implies, the journal is connected with the illustrator and painter Lothar Meggendorfer (1847-1925), who was famous due to his movable picture books for children, and who was also connected with a weekly journal called Fliegende Blätter. As editor, Lothar Meggendorfer was influential in determining both content and appearance of the journal, with illustrations for jokes, short stories and poems, caricatures and above all, stories told in pictorial form. Also involved as illustrators were Josef Mukarovsky (1851-1921), Otto Bromberger (1862-1943) and Victor Schramm (1865-1929).
The first edition appeared with the title Aus Lothar Meggendorfers lustiger Bildermappe, later editions from 1890 onwards carried the title Meggendorfers Humoristische Blätter, and from 1897 to 1925 Meggendorfer Blätter. In 1905 Meggendorfer left the publisher. Karl Pommerhanz (1857-1940) took over the picture stories and above all Josef Mauder (1884-1669) became responsible for the presentation of the journal.
