An interesting original example of a British Boer War cartoon by artist Charles K. Cook. It appears that old John
Bull, here shown in the guise of a British naval Tar, is in for a bit of a rude surprise by the seeming harmless, almost
imp-like little Boer.

A finely done and detailed gouache illustration, Charles K. Cook
seems to have been primarily an artist who
specialized in book and postcard illustration during the late 19th and early 20th Centuries.
