Illustration to 'William McGonagall: the truth at last'

Scope and Content

Two MS illustrations in black of McGonagall, on separate pieces of paper but mounted on the same piece of cardboard. The left drawing shows McGonagall wearing a helmet and brandishing a sword. The drawing on the right shows him being propelled into the air, surrounded by rockets, clouds and a bomb, with a speech bubble ‘oooooh. to be or not to be. etc.’ MS annotations in blue ‘27’, circled, above the left picture and a line down the middle to divide the images. On the reverse, an MS annotation in blue ‘2871/24’.
