Description
 
An 8" x 5" hand colored lithograph with women looking askance  at a strutting gent.  His head and mustache can be moved from side to side with a mechanism on the reverse. It is captioned "Tis a sort of thing a fellow can't understand, That when he really does the grand, The girls should pass him by and laugh, AS if he were good game for chaff  But you with scorn can pass them by Although to make a butt they try, Your style denotes a taste refined,a  And not to vulgar ways inclined"..
