Exhibit item:
ALONZO DELANO
Pen Knife Sketches; or, Chips off the Old Block, 1853

This early California imprint includes a story and a common caricature of a ferocious bear mauling a victim. Peter's two daughters, one with a rifle and the other with a knife, are about to rescue their fallen father. Women were seldom involved in stories of grizzly attacks, as victims or saviors.
