Old long-forgotten classics can be a real novelty for your audience. This is the case of the two very easy-to-do comical "sketches" or so-called chalk talks. Learning to draw the simple figures described in this hard-to-find manuscript, and you are always ready to entertain your audience.
From the introduction
The execution of the "sketches" included in the performance of these clever comical creations cannot fail to please the most exacting audience, the performer, be he or she ever so ignorant of the art of sketching, may produce them without much practice, and by their means, together with the screamingly funny verbal description of each subject, provoke considerable merriment, even though the "sketches" be, if possible, not up to the same standard as those we give as examples.
This brochure fulfills the part of "self-instructor" and "guide" to presentation of an amusing lightning sketching "act." Together with the 37 accompanying sketches, and the screamingly funny verbal "patter" it constitutes a felicitous rapid sketching novelty that anyone can accomplish with very little diligence, and no pretense of skill.
