This old original Valentine Greetings card is dated 1906, published by Raphael Tuck & Sons. This was part of a series of 'insult' Valentine cards (also called 'penny dreadfuls) they made geared toward particular trades and hobbies. This one is intended for the would-be yachtsman. The lithographed illustration shows a man in his sailing clothes with telescope in hand. The poem reads...'He's dressed from his head to his toes - In a typical yachtsman's clothes - But nautical ways - To him seem a maze - His record in races oft shows!' The card measures 6 3/4 by 8 3/4 inches. Slight soil/wear/crease to edges. Overall in very good condition. This is not a reprint...but the real 1906 'penny dreadful'.
