Original drawing, cartoon of an elderly man tossing a small black boy to a crocodile, captioned in pencil, "Infanticide: Is the Son Up? The Son is up -"
1910 - Herford, Oliver. Pencil, pen and ink, unsigned. 1 vols. 7-1/4 x 6 inches. This drawing was apparently intended for publication, as there are pencilled marginal instructions as to dimensions. Oliver Herford was known as both a poet and illustrator, as well as for his wit. Born in England, he moved with his family to the United States when he was six, but later attended schools in both countries, as well as in France. He had a long and outstanding career as a writer and illustrator for numerous magazines including "Life" and "Harper's Weekly." He also, between 1893 and 1931, wrote and illustrated approximately fifty books of "artistic nonesense." In addition to the humor of his published works, "Herford's oral humor was remembered as often as his verse. In his heyday he was called 'the most quoted man in America'" (Kunitz & Haycraft). Kunitz & Haycraft, p. 642 Pencil, pen and ink, unsigned. 1 vols. 7-1/4 x 6 inches
