Title: Original Drawings on the Theme of Temperance
Publication Date: 1887
Book Condition: Near Fine
Original brown cloth; oblong, 223 x 142 mm; pp. 72, mostly full with drawings in black ink, occasionally highlighted in red. Boards a little soiled; binding a bit shaken. Front paste-down bears the ticket of "A. A. Walker & Co., Arists Materials and Fine Stationery, 538 Washington St., Boston," a branch store of Frost & Adams, opposite the Bijou Theater. Internally clean, featuring the works of H. M. Weston, whose drawings are naive and a bit weird (therefore, charming), and all on the theme of temperance. Weston is certain that religious observation will save one from gambling, alcohol, dancing. and a shark smoking a pipe?! Unique, to say the least. Bookseller Inventory # D7499
