There is only 1 item left in stock.

This humorous print entitled "A Monkey in Mischief" comes from The Clown's Duel and Other Stories Without Words, published by E.S. Gorham (New York) in about 1900.  These 8 narrative color illustrations show an orangutan and an elephant who come to a box marked "Mettez 10 cents."  The elephant puts in a coin and leaves, while the orangutan pulls the lever.  Nothing comes out, so he tips over the box and eats until he's glutted.  Two monkey policemen chase and catch him, because he is so filled with food he can't run away.  The page measures 9.75" high by 6.625" wide and is a medium-weight tan-colored paper.  The illustrator and author are unknown.  In very good condition, although due to the acidic content and age of the paper, the pages has yellowed, particularly around the edges.
