Illustration to 'William McGonagall: the truth at last'

Scope and Content

Two MS illustrations in black, one by Peter Sellers, on separate pieces of paper but mounted on the same piece of cardboard. The left drawing, by Peter Sellers, shows a man walking and playing bagpipes, with various unclear arrows and dotted lines surrounding him. Signed ‘P. Sellers’ on a separate small piece of paper, taped above the drawing. The drawing on the right shows a castle with a door opening onto a figure, presumably McGonagall, with a speech bubble ‘ohhh. Face!’ and a dotted arrow pointing to the bottom of the hill on which the castle is situated. MS annotations in blue on the cardboard ‘89’, circled, above the left picture; ‘91’, circled, above the right picture and a line down the middle of the cardboard to divide the images. On the reverse, an MS annotation in blue ‘2871/24’.
