Pullen’s satirical political pamphlet on the Franco-Prussian War, ‘The fight at Dame Europa's school: showing how the German boy thrashed the French boy and how the English boy looked on,’ enjoyed a resounding success, 192,000 copies being printed within seven months, and it was immediately translated into several languages.   This Portuguese translation is rare.
