This humorous print entitled "The Artful Donkey" comes from The Clown's Duel and Other Stories Without Words, published by E.S. Gorham (New York) in about 1900.  These 9 narrative color illustrations show a sportsman who accidentally shoots off his nose, has the area covered with a balloon-like bandage which catches fire when he smokes and leads him to get a nose attached to glasses.  The page measures 9.75" high by 6.625" wide and is a medium-weight tan-colored paper.  The illustrator has signed the last panel but it is difficult to decipher the name and date.  In very good condition, although due to the acidic content and age of the paper, the page has yellowed, particularly around the edges.
