L'assiette au beurre
L'assiette au beurre (Buttercup) was a French satirical and anti-clerical magazine founded in in Paris in 1901, ceasing publication in 1912 after 594 issues. A number of well-known artists of the day were regular contributors: Caran d'Ache, Juan Gris, Steinlen, Vallotton and Van Dongen, to name a few. The edition for 25 June 1904—drawn by the artist Jossot—was dedicated to Freemasonry. Every issue consisted of 16 full-page drawings.

On the cover is marked les E... de la V... which is 'les enfants de la veuve', or in English 'Children of the Widow.' The first image has the text: " C'est un homme libre et de bonnes moeurs qui demande entrer parmi nous!" "Its a free man and of good morals who wants to be amongst us."
