From The Booklovers Magazine, 1904.
Dr. Boli thinks this is a very funny picture. More specifically, he thinks that there is more humor in the position of the cardinal’s one red slipper than you will find in the entire comics page of today’s newspaper, assuming you can see the comics in today’s newspaper without an electron microscope. It seems that M. Vibert specialized in poking fun at overstuffed ecclesiastics.
This and many other pictures—humorous, beautiful, curious, and surprising—may be found at Behold!, a site that promises “a picture or more a day,” and so far has lived up to its promise.
