SERIES: Satire

This is one of 100 cards featuring humorous cartoons and advertising the "Ariosa" brand of coffee that Arbuckles' issued in the late 1880s. All the illustrations were originally published in either Puck, Judge, or Texas Siftings, three of the more popular satirical periodicals of the day. Most typically aimed their derision at blacks, Jews, country "rubes", or the Irish. This particular card was based on an 1887 Puck cartoon drawn by A. B. Shults and features a fellow on crutches explaining that while he received his injury "during" the Civil War, he wasn't exactly "in" the war.

The back shows the Arbuckles' factory buildings, dock, railroad cars, and a ship.

SIZE: 5" x 3"

DATE: Undated (but probably 1888 or 1889)

LITHOGRAPHER: Not identified

CONDITION: Very good, I'd say. This card is generally only lightly soiled with just slightly worn edges and corners. However, it does have a somewhat "toned" area at the top and some small scrapes in the top margin. (Please see scans.)

MULTIPLE ITEM SHIPPING DISCOUNT: I will ship up to 4 cards for the single base shipping charge shown. For purchases of more than 4 cards, the shipping charge will increase by just a small increment for every 4 additional cards.



"Excuse me, stranger," he said, "I see you are un-
fortunate in having a crippled leg."

"Yes, sir; I got that during the war of the Rebellion."

"Ah, indeed! Were you under McClellan?"

"No sir; I was under a beer wagon in Hoboken."

From Puck, by permission.
