Votaries of the Weed No 29 (colour litho)

8660518 Votaries of the Weed No 29 (colour litho) by Clarke, Joseph Clayton (Kyd) (1856-1937); Private Collection; (add.info.: Votaries of the Weed, No 29. This type of youth invariably affects a bull-dog species of pipe which he fills lavishly with what might be described as kindred brands of tobacco, ie, high-sounding and patriotic packets containing "Death of Glory Shag, " or "Hearts of Oak Mixture." He fondly imagines himself to be likewise one of the bull-dog breed, but we have our doubts! We have seen him deliberately eject a cloud of smoke in a fair damsel's face, and-"the rest is silence!"

EDITORS COMMENTS
This vibrant and humorous lithograph by Joseph Clayton Clarke (Kyd) captures the essence of a young man indulging in his love for tobacco. Titled "Votaries of the Weed No 29," the image depicts a stylishly dressed youth puffing on a bull-dog pipe filled with patriotic-sounding tobacco blends such as "Death or Glory Shag" and "Hearts of Oak Mixture." The artist humorously portrays the young man as fancying himself to be as tough and rugged as the bulldog breed, but doubts are raised when he playfully blows smoke into a lady's face. The caption accompanying this cigarette card illustration from 1916 adds to its charm, providing insight into the social norms and trends of early 20th-century England. With its colorful depiction and witty narrative, this print is not only visually engaging but also offers a glimpse into the cultural attitudes towards smoking during that time. It serves as both an amusing historical artifact and a testament to Clarke's talent for capturing everyday life with humor and flair.
