Description

Comic Valentine. A tinted lithograph printed in two colours (black and red ink) on a long sheet of folded thin, wove paper; a format known as a 'long comic'. A man wearing a hat and holding a cane in his right hand. He has an over-sized head and an angry expression on his face. A crying boy is seen in the background over his left shoulder. The images are drawn with heavy outlines. The words: BRUTE! / COWARD! / BULLY are printed at upper right. A printed verse below: "You are a growling, graceless / drone; / Your hide I'd like to tan, / Why don't you leave the kids / alone? / You wouldn't fight a man." The style of this Valentine suggests that it probably dates from the 1900s. See also P.14345-R-86.
