I always loved these old political cartoons. Do you know of any books that are purely cartoon from the 1800-1900 era?

I’m not sure if there is a book that only catalogues nineteenth-century cartoons, but the Library of Congress published American Political Prints, 1766-1876 (1991) which includes their cartoon collection for a comparable era. The book gives a brief contextual summary as well as the date and place of publication for the political images. Also, the introduction briefly explains the history of American printmaking and also includes a selected bibliography for further research.
