Cruelty to dumb animals

Frederick Opper Hand Colored And Her Name Was Maude Sunday Topper Comic Strip Original Art dated 2-25 (King Features Syndicate, year unknown). And Her Name Was Maud ran as the topper to Happy Hooligan from 1926-1932. This partially hand colored Sunday was done to indicate colors of the various elements to the printer, and the episode has an image area of 20.5" x 13". Aside from paper tanning, soiling, and heavy edge and corner wear, the art is in Very Good condition.



Very tempting.

Opper was one of the greats.... I see from Wikipedia that Maude in fact first appeared in 1904, so this would be a fairly late outing; Opper must have been looking rather oldfashioned.

and damn! I've been outbid on

Difficult decisions. Still, the Tuthill trumps the Opper.
