Wood engraving

Punch (28 January 1882): 46

“Punch’s Fancy Portraits. — No. 68”

In him those wholly antique hours are seen,
      To Art an Ornament, himself, and true,
Leaving to crazy limners pale sage Green
To clothe limp inky Forms of sickly Hue.

But him as for a Map doth Nature store,
To show false Art true Chivalry of Yore.
Sonnets by Will Shakespeare. (New Version)
