No It is Rotten Out, c. 1920s Ink Stamp and Graphite on 19th c. Ledger Paper

Regular price $30.00

This is one of five drawings on ledger paper I am listing, all found together, with some 19th c. writing on some of the pages, but the drawings (or in this case printed lettering) done a few decades later, I'm guessing 1920s or 30s, when a kid, or a couple of them, got a hold of the ledger. The phrase "No, it is rotten out" spelled out in hand-stamped letters really makes this for me, but then I also like to think about handsome George, and wonder about jerky Bruce Cobb, and love that the maker (with an exuberant but impossible to read) signature swore that all above was TRUE. 

13 7/8” l x 8 1/2” and in very good condition.
