Beautifully packaged, Love - the Greatest Game is a compilation of satirical vintage drawings on the theme of love and courtship and captures the challenge of finding a wife (or husband) in high society at the turn of the 20th century. Charles Dana Gibson's illustrations of beautiful, spirited and independent women leave no doubt about who is in charge in the complex matrimonial games of the period.
This unique gift edition features 80 drawings and cartoons detailing life among the high society of New York and Boston. Gibson's acute observations capture the fashion, the architecture, the gesture and the expressions of this very particular period in time. The images have been selected from The Weaker Sex - The Story of a Susceptible Bachelor (1903) and Americans (1900).
