Le Pélerin is a French weekly newspaper that began on July 12, 1873. Founded by the journalist group Bayard Presse, who formed the initial core. The founders aimed to strengthen the Catholic presence, employing for this purpose an antisemitic line and sometimes antisemitic cartoons accusing Jews of French society's ills, alongside religious accusations regarding Jesus and Christianity. Achille Lemot created the cartoons, later drawn by Amédée Vignola and Henri Genévrier. The newspaper's headlines were usually belligerently declared, and in the Dreyfus Affair the newspaper was among its opponents. From 1896 the title pages appeared in color and circulation reached around 150,000 copies.

All issues complete. Overall very good condition.
