Obscurity of the Day: Animal Alphabet
The artist is the always delightful William F. Marriner, who did a very short stint at the World, only about eight months in 1901 (and he moonlighted with McClure part of that time). Only a few of Marriner's series have been covered on the blog thus far, a criminal oversight I'll work on correcting. Here's Johnnie Bostonbeans and The House of Mirth.
Thanks to Cole Johnson for the scan!
On the original hi-res scan the tiny text is legible. Unfortunately not all that interesting -- "Well, Wouldn't That Bump You?"
