    Description

    Gregg - Colonel "Teddy" Roosevelt Editorial Comic Strip Original Art (c. 1898). Although undated, from context we can place this at approximately 1898. The papers in the one panel editorial gag strip refer to him only as Colonel Roosevelt, not as Governor (of New York, 1899-1900) or as President (1901-1909), indicated this piece predated those posts. It is signed as "Gregg". Produced in ink over graphite on 18.25" x 21.5" Bristol board with an image area of 17" x 15". The Bristol is tanned and brittle, with a 3.5" crack from the left side into the image area. There are a couple of small pieces missing from the margin, with overall handling. It is in Good condition.
