Two women scared by a rat

Two women in the town of Hamelin in Lower Saxony, Germany, being scared by one of the rats which were plaguing the townsfolk in 1284. The event inspired the legend of the Pied Piper who removed the rats by playing his musical instrument but when the townsfolk refused to pay him, he lured away most of their children. From “The Pied Piper of Hamelin” by Robert Browning, illustrated by Kate Greenaway, published by George Routledge & Sons, London, Glasgow, Manchester and New York in 1888.

King picking flower buds (Victorian cartoon)

A mad King picking all the flower buds off his plants. Naturally, once the buds had gone, there would be no flowers, so the other plants in the garden were angry and grew so much that they blocked up his doorway and he couldn't go out! And the flowers grew contentedly, once left alone. From 'Merry Conceits and Whimsical Rhymes', written and drawn by Charles H. Ross. Engraved and printed by Edmund Evans. Published by George Routledge & Sons, London & New York, 1883. Each somewhat anarchistic illustration comes with a humorous verse, often highly unpolitically-correct by today's standards.
