King picking flower buds (Victorian cartoon) Featured Antique children book illustrations Print

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
