'Politeness of Francis to Henry', 1897. King Francis I of France, with exaggeratedly hooked nose and holding a pair of boots, hands a steaming mug to King Henry VIII of England who is wearing a nightcap. Henry has either just got out of bed, or is about to retire for the night. From "The Comic History of England" by Gilbert Abbott A Beckett, with satirical illustrations by John Leech. [Bradbury, Agnew & Co, London, 1897]
