A Gentleman Of All Temperance - a 113 year old print from an original cartoon by the famous cartoonist and illustrator Sir Bernard Partridge (British 1861-1945).  Published by Punch in February 1901 the print is guaranteed to be original and not a later reproduction.

Punch was a weekly satirical magazine published between the mid 19th and 20th centuries which was also known as the London Charivari. Sir Wilfrid Lawson was an English temperance campaigner and radical, anti-imperialist Liberal Party politician. The cartoon  reflects on the temperance campaign, and alludes through Shakespearian quotes to the recent poison beer epidemic in Manchester and the North West, which affected thousands of beer drinkers with many fatalities. The poisonings were eventually found to be caused by contaminated Barley Malt.

The print measures 8x10 inches (20x26cm), is titled, dated and paginated.  It is in good condition for its age with any minor blemishes confined to the border area, and these will be unnoticeable once the cartoon has been mounted and framed.  The cartoon has print on the reverse.  

The text on this print reads:

“A GENTLEMAN OF ALL TEMPERANCE.”

(Measure for Measure, Act 111 Sc.2)

Sir Wilfr-d L-ws-n (with his favourite, and under certain conditions, harmless beverage, alluding to the beer-drinker). 

“I WOULD HAVE HIM POISONED WITH A POT OF ALE! - AHEM! - SHAKESPEARE!” (Vide Henry the fourth, part 1 Act 1. Sc3)

The additional subtext on this print can be seen in the gallery images.
