Entitled As Innocent as Babes
An original (from the date given, not a later re-print) 1893, early Louis Wain print from engraving on a full page from a popular magazine of the day.
Three dogs sitting to attention on a kerbside, pretending not to notice a chop (pork chop maybe) that has been dropped, probably by a passing butcher boy.
One of LW's very early works, pre - cats!
There is a print from engraving on the reverse and some poetry which seems to be the Union Song and taken from old prints of 1801, so the caption states.
The page measures overall approximately 320 x 250 mm (12.5 x 9.75 " ). It is printed on both sides. There is some age yellowing possibly with some spotting - please check the larger picture for condition. This item will be packaged in a tube unless otherwise requested.
