Political Kidnapping

John Tenniel


Wood engraving

Punch (16 February 1867)

Mrs. Russell. “Hi! Help! Ple-eee-ece! She’s a takin’ away me che-ild!.”

Signed with monogram lower left.

Like his March cartoon in which Tenniel depicts Russell complaining that Disraeli has poached his game, this one comments upon Tory co-option of a major Liberal political goal. — George P. Landow
