Peck Tortoise and Hare Print

1907 "The Tortoise and the Hare."  Print of a drawing originally created by Henry Jarvis Peck.  7 x 9.5.   $2.74 from Steven Morawiec, August, '03.

The illustration features an old man apparently tugging a boat of younger men through the ocean. The title of the image implies a moral behind the story depicted in the drawing. The slower fishing boat of the old man has to tow in the speedy sailing boat with its broken mast and several riders.  Slow and steady wins again!
