SHE STOOPS TO CONQUER
Thomson has drawn the figure of a man in period dress celebrating by kicking up his heels, taking off his hat and waving a whip in the air. The man is Tony Lumpkin, a character from the play. Thomson captioned the piece: "'And Tony Lumpkin is his own man again' / p.197"; he has signed it, "With / Hugh Thomson's / kind regards / December 1912." This is an incredible and unique copy with the ornate binding in beautiful condition.
