1900 Print (Present Arms!) from The Clown's Duel

There is only 1 item left in stock.

This humorous print entitled "Present Arms!" comes from The Clown's Duel and Other Stories Without Words, published by E.S. Gorham (New York) in about 1900.  These 4 narrative color illustrations show two boys who replace a guard's gun with a water hose, when he falls asleep.  The boy's turn on the water, just as a couple in fancy dress are walking by the guard.  The page measures 9.75" high by 6.625" wide and is a medium-weight tan-colored paper.  There is a signature but it is unreadable.  In very good condition, although due to the acidic content and age of the paper, the page has yellowed, particularly around the edges.
