Illustration to 'William McGonagall: the truth at last'

Scope and Content

Three MS illustrations in black, on separate pieces of paper but mounted on the same piece of cardboard. The left drawing shows McGonagall surrounded by various objects flying at him. An MS caption, since erased, ‘MACGONIGAL AS JULIUS CÆSAR’. The drawing on the right shows McGonagall wearing a wide brimmed hat. A smaller drawing above this shows a brick flying towards his head. MS annotations in blue on the cardboard ‘48’ circled, next to the left picture; ‘57’, circled, above the right picture and a line down the middle of the cardboard to divide the images, labelled ‘SPLIT’ at both ends. On the reverse, an MS annotation in blue ‘2871/24’.
