The Cheerful Cherub was an American single-panel newspaper cartoon written and drawn by Rebecca McCann. McCann began publishing Cheerful Cherub cartoons in the Chicago Evening Post in 1917, when she was just twenty years old, after editor Julian Mason took an interest in the little drawings and verses that dropped out of McCann's portfolio as she tried to show him more serious work. -------- Each single-panel cartoon featured the title character, accompanied by his pet dog, speaking a short verse, generally in iambic meter, offering wisdom, wit, and insight on sundry topics such as ambition, education, friendship, lies, sin, and work.----------- Bindings are tight and square. Text clean, light even toning. Moderate shelf handling wear. Dust Jacket with price is in a new clear protective Mylar sleeve and has age-toned with wear on the corners and spine tips. 8vo; 8.25 inches tall; 512 pages. 17th Printing.
