Hark! Hark! The Dogs Do Bark!

1914. Colour lithograph folded in original paper wrappers, 56.2 x 76cm (unfolded). Old folds as issued, minor foxing to image centre left.

Text includes “The Dogs of War are loose in Europe, and a nice noise they are making!...Serio-comique map of Europe at war. With a note by Walter Emanuel...Designed and printed by Johnson, Riddle & Co., Ltd, London, SE. Published by G.W. Bacon & Co., Ltd, 127, Strand, WC.”

Held in the British Library with the comment “European nations are represented by various breeds of dog with the British bulldog, the French poodle, the German dachshund and Russia illustrated as a great bear. Britain is approached from the north by a giant sailor holding numerous dog leads with battleships threatening the continent. Eastern Europe is dominated by a large steamroller driven by the Tsar of Russia flattening everything in its way. Other European countries are identified by figures which are equally amusing – a Spanish bullfighter, a smiling Dutchman, a knife-wielding Greek ready to stab his neighbours in the back and an Italian carabiniere with pistol in hand.”
