There is only 1 item left in stock.

This humorous print entitled "There's Many a Slip Twixt Cup and Lip" comes from The Clown's Duel and Other Stories Without Words, published by E.S. Gorham (New York) in about 1900.  These 3 narrative color illustrations show a slapstick occurrence: two proper 18th century gentleman are toasting; the man whose standing has tied his dog to the leg of his stool; the dog sees a cat, goes after it, and pulls the stool out; the man goes to sit down and hits the floor.  The page measures 9.75" high by 6.625" wide and is a medium-weight tan-colored paper.  Signed "Guydo" on right side of bottom panel.  In very good condition, although due to the acidic content and age of the paper, the page has yellowed, particularly around the edges.
