A GALLERY OF PEN SKETCHES IN BLACK AND WHITE OF OUR MICHIGAN FRIENDS "AS WE SEE 'EM."

Newspaper Cartoonists' Association: Detroit 1905 Illustr, oblong 9.25 x 12, pebbled black leather, gilt lettering on front cover, all edges gilt, 640 pp. Covers worn and rubbed (including lettering), corners and spine tips bumped and worn, inner hinges cracked, a few tears and soiling, after the extensive Detroit section contents have more soiling, tears, waterstains on lower margins, some corners were stuck together and later pulled apart, overall good condition. The men on these pages, i.e., Henry Ford, the Dodge brothers, Henry M. Leland, August Goebel, Bernhard Stroh, D.M. Ferry, Jos. L. Hudson, Fred Sanders, are well known names in the Detroit area and represent only a few of the professions listed. Some of the professions: automotive, baking, brewing, capitalist, contractor, drugs, lumber, manufacturing, medical, real estate, veterinarian. One of the more interesting caricatures is of August H. Gorenflo, M.D., who is shown walking away from two patients' beds holding a saw in one hand and a human arm in the other, one patient says to the other "There goes my arm" to which the other patient replies, "No it ain't. That's my leg." From the "Exordium:" From the broad galleries of the newspaper cartoonist's sketchbook the following character sketches have been collated. . . And if no great beauty is depicted in his portrait let the subject console himself with the reflection that these are Michiganders. . . Not as they see themselves, but as they appear to the Little Gods of the Ink Pots -- sometimes miscalled "Devils" -- the Cartoonists and Caricaturists of the Daily Newspapers."
