The War Question in Cartoons

O would some Power the gift to give us
To see ourselves as others see us!
It would from many a blunder free us,
And foolish notion:
What airs in dress and gait would leave us,
And even devotion!

To A Louse. On seeing one on a lady’s bonnet at church,  
by Robert Burns

The American edition of the Review of Reviews began in January 1890 in New York and was, in the beginning, nearly identical to William Stead’s London-based Review of Reviews (1890). Beginning with vol. 3, no. 15, April 1891, the American edition was no longer identical with the English edition (which continued publication until 1936). A similar – and possibly related – publication was The World's Work A History Of Our Time (1900-1932), which began publishing under the title Review of Reviews and World's Work in 1929.
