Description: This original pencil drawing by Edward Tennyson Reed was created for The Bystander magazine's "1000th Number," in the 1920s. It features Reed's caricatures of (clockwise l to r): Lord Cave, Stanley Baldwin, Lord Salisbury, H.H. Asquith, David Lloyd George and Winston Churchill, all avidly reading The Bystander.

The drawing measures 10 1/2 x 14 1/2 inches and is signed in pencil with Reed's monogram. It has been handsomely matted and framed.

EDWARD TENNYSON REED (1860-1933) was born in Greenwich, London, and educated, like Winston Churchill, at Harrow, as the son of an MP. Reed made his first contribution to Punch magazine in June 1889 and joined the staff the following year, becoming Punch's parliamentary caricaturist in 1884. He remained so until 1912, when he left Punch to draw for, among others, The Bystander, a relatively new illustrated weekly tabloid magazine launched in 1903. Winston Churchill, during his early years in Parliament, was a favorite subject of Reed's.
