Cartoons in Rhyme and Line

£14.99

Product description

Sir Wilfrid Lawson was an English temperance campaigner and radical, anti-imperialist Liberal Party politician who sat in the House of Commons variously between 1859 and 1906. He was recognised as the leading humourist in the House of Commons.

F. Carruthers Gould was a caricaturist and political cartoonist.

The two joined forces to produce this 1905 collection of satirical pieces, in words and pictures. Lawson's targets included the British aggression towards, and exploitation of the Chinese, the Boers, the Irish, slavery etc. He also criticised the aristocracy and their dealings with ordinary people.

Gould's cartoons capture the spirit perfectly.

Some general wear to covers. All lightly browned. Otherwise clean.

Unusually modern views for the Victorian era.
