Morn and Night
Valentine card


Publisher: J.T. Wood & Co




Comic valentine of the changeable 'before and after' type with second illustration inside. 18mo-size white wove paper with embossed border and hand-coloured lithograph of a man wearing checked trousers, top hat and with cane and monocle. Another hand-coloured lithograph on the right-hand inside page shows the same man without his jacket, uncoiffured and holding a beer tankard in his right hand. A printed verse below: "MORN AND NIGHT / To see you abroad one would suppose / You were at least a gent by your clothes / But see at home one would more believe / That appearances so much deceive". "J.T. Wood 278, Strand" printed at lower left and right. Additionally embossed "WOOD" at lower left. From a series of 'changeable' valentines by J.T. Wood, six of which are mounted onto adjacent leaves of the same album. See P.14412-R-15, P.14412-R-16, P.14412-R-17, P.14412-R-18 and P.14412-R-37.
