A.Moreland


There was quite a number of graphic artists who plundered the past on a regular basis to make humorous points about the present, or vice versa. A.Moreland produced regular pages for the British newspaper The Morning Leader . They were eventually gathered together as Humors of History - the complete edition is 160 pages.

My edition is undated but I'd guess it to be c1915.
