Product details Wonderful Instinct of The Giraffe

Wonderful Instinct of The Giraffe

George du Maurier

'Wonderful Instinct of The Giraffe', 1865. 'By which it Escapes Diphtheria during The Winter. (N.B. A Positive Fact.)' This cartoon pokes a little gentle fun at the giraffes at London Zoo. However, it also highlights the considerable loss of life, particularly in urban areas, caused by diseases such as diphtheria. On another note, this is an early depiction of the new technology of photography. That this was not yet a speedy science is evident from the depth of the snow on the back of the photographer. From Punch, or the London Charivari, March 4, 1865.
