These are the separated 1900 Covers from The Clowns' Duel and Other Stories Without Words, created by the Society for Promoting Christian Knowledge and published by E.S. Gorham of New York. The book consisted of grotesque but humorous color illustrations which got their morals across only visually. The three panel cover shows dueling clowns who face each other (panel 1), appear to shoot off each other heads (panel 2), and reveal the joke that the heads were false, leaving arm and arm with the smoking blunderbuss guns abandoned behind them (panel 3). The image is signed "F. Neyd Hart." No information could be found on this individual. Each cover measures 10" high by 7" wide and was printed on cardboard-like paper in France. The cover includes the three panels in subdued colors (pink on white polka dots, blue and white stripes, white clown heads with pink cheeks and conical hats on a pale gray green background), a panel of text and deep olive green border. The back is a solid deep olive green. These 1900 Covers from The Clowns' Duel and Other Stories Without Words are in Good condition with minor staining and a jagged edge where the pages had been stapled on to the covers. Ideal for use in an art project.
