About this Item

First Edition. Pages 1 p.6 1/2" x 15 3/4" Extracted from "The Comic Almanack" for 1853. Folded engraving mounted on card. First Edition. Cohn, 184. A telling cartoon by George Cruikshank arguing for female enfranchisement. A large crowd of both men and women stand on the side of the platform holding The Ladies Candidate, while few voters stand on the side of The Gentleman's Candidate. The supporters of women's rights are suave, beauteous and animated, bearing flowers and smiles, with a Knight Errant whose armor bears the emblem of Love rides amongst them. The opponents are glum, angry appearing, bored and jealous. A strong statement by the eminent 19th Century cartoonist who often stood for social justice and reform. This cartoon was originally published as the folded fronispiece of Cruikshank's Comic Almanack for 1853 and has been removed and mounted on card. Some cracking at original folds without loss. Moderate staining and scant foxing, but principally a bright, clear copy. Overall, Good. Bookseller Inventory # 8699
