The artist has compressed in these companion pieces more racy humor and shrewd appreciation of human nature than is usually to be found in the most ponderous tomes. He who can thus strike the wit and wisdom of his time into current coin performs an infinitely greater service for mankind than he who masses it in Egyptian pyramids. The phase of life here embodied, no less than the artist's skill, invites study--and study which shall be entertaining, no matter how often repeated. [P. 6; see entry 00960021 for companion piece.]
