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

Unfortunate Victorian schoolboy being punished and bullied by his schoolbooks

A Victorian schoolboy wearing a dunce's cap is standing in the corner on a pile of books. Fluttering around him are fantastical images of more schoolbooks who are taunting him about his stupidity and failure. There is also a besom tweaking his ear, to remind him that he needs chastisement. From ?Little Folks - A Magazine for the Young? published in 1894 by Cassell & Company Ltd., London, Paris and Melbourne
